Over 170 people died, with thousands more injured and many children unaccounted for, after a large blast at Beirut's port on August 4th 2020.
Lebanon was already going through a severe economic crisis, with many families struggling just to put food on the table. And with a sharp spike in COVID cases, hospitals were already overwhelmed.
No matter what the emergency, children suffer the most. They may be hurt, shocked and separated from their parents.
Our Emergency Fund means we can be on the ground within hours of a disaster striking, so we can quickly reach children with the essentials they need to survive.
