The American multinational consumer goods corporation Procter & Gamble (P&G) has chimed in its support to Beirut after 2,750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate mysteriously and inexplicably exploded, flattening neighborhoods nearby the port.
“Beirut, we are with you,” said P&G before announcing its 1-million-dollar donation, which will be presented in “monetary and in-kind contribution to rehabilitating and rebuilt Lebanon.”
“Our hearts break for the families and victims impacted by the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon, earlier this week. We are stepping up as a force for good through our product donations and partners.”
