Help Lebanon After Beirut Explosion

As the search for survivors continues after the Beirut Explosion, a number of groups worldwide have mobilized to help the thousands of people wounded by the blast, and the hundreds of thousands of others who have been made homeless. The enormous explosion that leveled parts of Beirut, Lebanon, on Tuesday killed at least 137 people and injured more than 4,000 others, overwhelming the authorities and damaging many hospitals and critical facilities. Rescue workers were struggling to treat the wounded of the blast, which was powerful enough to be felt 150 miles away here in Cyprus. As the desperate search for survivors continues, with teams scouring through rubble from homes, twisted metal from cars, broken windows, and other debris, groups around the world have moved to help. For those looking for ways to give support, here is a list of 10 organizations and initiatives operating in the country. Impact Lebanon, a nonprofit organization, has set up a crowdfunding campaign to help organizations on the ground, and is helping to share information about people still missing after the explosion. The group had raised over $3 million as of Wednesday and donated the first $100,000 to the Lebanese Red Cross. The Lebanese Red Cross is the main provider of ambulance services in Lebanon, and said it would dispatch every ambulance from North Lebanon, Bekaa and South Lebanon to Beirut to treat the wounded and help in search-and-rescue operations. You can make a one-time contribution here. The United Nations’ World Food Program provides food to people displaced or made homeless after the blast. Lebanon imports nearly 85 percent of its food, and the port of Beirut, the epicenter of the explosion, played a central role in that supply chain. With the port now severely damaged, food prices are likely to be beyond the reach of many. You can donate here. The nongovernmental organization Humanity and Inclusion has 100 workers in Lebanon, including physical therapists, psychologists and social workers. They are focusing on post-surgical therapy in Beirut following the explosion. You can make a single or monthly contribution here. UNICEF, the United Nations agency specializing in aid to children, is providing [...]
