“It is not just about finding survivors in the rubble and providing the wounded with medical care…,” said the NGO, “It is also about the 300,000 people whose homes were destroyed in the explosion.”
Assistance to Beirut has shifted from just urgent rescue and medical aid.
Now the focus is on helping fund families to repair their homes so they can regain a semblance of normal life, as well as providing psychological support to children and adults who were traumatized by the explosion, and helping coronavirus patients as the virus rapidly spreads.
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.
