To support Beirut in the aftermath of the August 4 explosion, the popular Italian clothing brand Diesel launched a special line of face masks.
The limited-edition masks, announced by Diesel on Monday, were launched in collaboration with the NGO Only The Brave Foundation (OTB).
All proceeds from the masks will go to help the ongoing reconstruction efforts in Beirut.
According to the product page, the masks are designed to be breathable, ecological, washable, recyclable, sterilizable, and anallergic. They also have bacteriological filtration capabilities with 99% efficiency, both outwards and toward the wearer.
In addition to helping reconstruct Beirut, the Diesel-OTB initiative will support the Lebanese NGO My School Purse, which secures education for children with cancer in hospitals.
“This is an OTB Foundation charity initiative in collaboration with Diesel to support the city of Beirut, destroyed by the explosion of last August 2020,” the product listing reads.
“Thanks to your contribution we will support Lebanese students in fulfilling their dreams compromised by recent events.”
This being one example, international charity initiatives are still launching almost every week in support of the Lebanese people, especially those affected by the horrific Beirut explosion, more than 100 days after the incident.
In another recent instance, Aid to the Church in Need, an international NGO, allocated over $5 million to help reconstruct churches damaged by the Beirut blast.
