Emergency Response in Lebanon
You’ve been hearing from us about the dire situation in Lebanon. Yesterday’s events are unprecedented. After the cataclysmic blast in Beirut, Lebanon needs your help.
Beirut woke up today to over 300,000 homeless, thousands injured and likely hundreds dead from yesterday’s blast. Your support is needed today to get critical medical and humanitarian supplies to Beirut.
Some are saying this is the third largest blast in a populated area in history, with only Hiroshima and Nagasaki being larger. Emergency rooms are over capacity with badly injured people, and medical supplies are quickly being depleted with no restock available. Hundreds of residential buildings have been destroyed, leaving families homeless in the middle of a pandemic and financial crisis. With the port damaged, expensive air shipments are currently the only way to get humanitarian relief into the country.
This comes on top of months of misery throughout Lebanon. Anera will not be able to meet all the needs. We are increasingly being called on by our partners and a community that does not know where else to turn.
Even after this war is over, the decimation of life and infrastructure in Gaza will take many years to overcome.
The miraculous work Anera’s team in Gaza is carrying out every day is fueled by the tremendous outpouring of solidarity and backing by our community.
