Hussein Malla | Credit: AP Home Activism It has been three weeks since the explosion took place and destroyed almost everything in its way. It caused tragic loss of life, property, and even morale. Homes, offices, restaurants, businesses, cars, schools, hospitals, and even valuable belongings were either completely destroyed or lost among the rubble.

But Tunefork Recording Studios, owned by musician/producer/engineer Fadi Tabbal, has taken it upon itself to raise funds to replace instruments and gear lost or totaled during the explosion.

Tunefork has since launched the Beirut Musicians’ Fund, which aims to raise just short of $35,000 USD to support (at least) 21 musicians. So far, the fund has raised $7,663 USD of its $34,935 USD goal. View this post on Instagram THANK YOU Our list is growing everyday. We are now at 21 musicians, and a goal of almost $35,000.
