Emergency in Lebanon: Beirut Explosion
What happened in Beirut?
A massive explosion rocked Beirut, capital city of Lebanon on the 4th August.
Over 130 people are confirmed casualties, 5000 are injured and at least 300,000 people have been displaced from their homes due to damage and structural danger.
Lebanon is already struggling with the impact of the Covid 19 Pandemic as well as a growing economic crisis. People are unable to afford food and the 1.5 million refugees hosted in the country are especially vulnerable.
This explosion is an unexpected and unimaginable disaster for a country in crisis.
