On that note, Turkish celebrity chef Nusret Gökçe (nicknamed Salt Bae), recently responded to the disaster by starting a fundraiser on his Instagram account to help the Lebanese people pull through the crisis.
“We are donating our record revenue for Beirut,” he announced on Instagram. “I Love You Lebanon, we are one family forever.”
Lebanon continues to receive support from foreign countries, most recently this week were shipments from both Poland and Greece, containing tons of foodstuffs and other humanitarian relief items.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
