ABAAD Launches a Humanitarian Call to Action Lebanon

The massive explosion at the National Port of Beirut, which occurred on Tuesday 4th of August, has devastated the lives of so many people, leading to the loss of at least 154 lives and 6,000 injuries, with many still missing, as per media reports. Additionally, 300,000 people have been made homeless, including 80,000 children who are currently displaced, according to UNICEF.

The impact of this disaster on a country that was already suffering from its worst-ever economic crisis is catastrophic. Hundreds of thousands of people are now in need of immediate aid including food, shelter, water, fuel, protection, as well as support to rebuild their lives and livelihoods.

Today, while we mourn the tragic loss of human lives, we stand firm and reassert our commitment and responsibility towards the people of Lebanon. ABAAD has put together a Rapid Disaster Response Plan to mobilize its resources and help alleviate the impacts of the crisis by ensuring the provision of life-saving services to the affected people.

ABAAD has launched an emergency humanitarian appeal to national, regional and international actors to contribute to the needs and demands of affected people.
