Hundreds of thousands of people have been left homeless following the blast in the Port of Beirut.

The catastrophic explosion in August 2020 sent shockwaves through Beirut, killing 154 people and injuring 5,000 people. Lebanon is a country already in the middle of a pandemic and an economic crisis. Now its people are being pushed to the brink.

“The country’s hospitals warn they are overwhelmed by the Covid-19 outbreak as they struggle with funding problems, power outages and a serious lack of personal protective equipment.”

Chiara Saccardi, Action Against Hunger’s Middle East Regional Head.
