HOW YOU CAN HELP LEBANON:
Penny Appeal Australia are working rapidly alongside our Penny Appeal global family to mobilise an immediate response to the current explosion in Beirut. Our teams are distributing food, clean water, blankets, pillows and medical supplies such as gauze, bandages, antiseptic, painkillers and more.
We're also responding to the current economic crisis, distributing much-needed food to starving families as well as COVID-19 testing and hygiene kits.
$100 will go towards providing all of the emergency relief supplies being delivered to those directly affected by the recent explosion and the current economic crisis.
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)
