While Action Against Hunger offices in Beirut suffered damage, we're relieved that our teams in the country are safe.
We're urgently working with other international organisations to identify humanitarian needs in the country and to implement our response as soon as possible.
With your help we can:
- Support families who have been left homeless or sustained damage to their homes.
- Provide hygiene kits and clean water to communities closest to the explosion.
- Keep providing mental health support to those who have been affected by this incident.
- Provide cash assistance for emergency food for vulnerable people at risk of hunger.
We will keep you updated on how we're helping vulnerable families cope with the destruction caused by the explosion in Beirut.
Hundred of thousands of people in Beirut have been made homeless, now more than ever they need our help to face this new crisis.
£25 could provide emergency shelter to a family of six who have lost their home, containing a tarpaulin sheet, two polyester covers, one rope and six cotton blankets.
£50 could help pay for an emergency inflatable water tank, which holds 5,000 litres of water.
£110 may provide chlorine for safe drinking water for more than 800 people for up to forty days.
