MORE ON THE SITUATION IN LEBANON.

The tragic explosion at the port in Lebanon's capital of Beirut has caused widespread damage across the city, sending shockwaves across a nation already suffering the severe effects of an economic crisis and global pandemic.
As of the 5th of August 2020, the reported casualties amount to more than 200 lives lost. With the number of casualties expected to rise, hospitals are currently at full capacity and medical staff are being forced to treat patients in parking lots after the explosions damaged hospitals, leaving the city without power.
We urgently need your help.

A COUNTRY ON THE BRINK OF COLLAPSE

This is the most powerful explosion in years that has hit Lebanon, which is home to 6.8 million people, including 1.5 million Syrian refugees.

The country is already reeling from a severe economic downturn and a surge in coronavirus infections.

The economic impact of this recent disaster is nothing short of a humanitarian crisis with the poorest and most vulnerable hit first.

Prophet Muhammad SAW said: “Give charity without delay, for it stands in the way of calamity.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
