The August 4 explosion in Lebanon has left hundreds dead, thousands injured, and more than 300,000 displaced.
While still reeling from the tragic death and pain, our brothers and sisters in Beirut will face devastating food, hygiene and health needs that were already severe given the COVID-19 and economic crises that have left so many vulnerable and in need of aid.
In response to this rapidly growing humanitarian need, Zaman International is partnering with International Medical Corps on a “Lift Lebanon” fundraising campaign. Through International Medical Corps, every dollar donated unlocks an additional $30 in humanitarian aid from institutional donors, ensuring that your contribution will have a significant impact. Money raised through Zaman International will be sent directly to Lebanon.
With your help, International Medical Corps, which is already leading a robust COVID-19 response effort in Lebanon, will be supporting local hospitals and health facilities to secure medical consumables and supplies. Tragically, much of these types of supplies were in storage at the port prior to the explosion.
Please consider donating what you can and share this message with your network. A swift response is needed to prevent further suffering and loss of life.
A long-time partner of Zaman, International Medical Corps began operating in Lebanon in 2006 and provides health, mental health, and gender-based violence prevention to refugees and vulnerable Lebanese. They support a network of 59 primary healthcare clinics and dispensaries across the country that provide, on average, more than 47,000 people with health services and nearly 1,000 people with mental health services each and every month.
