Emergency Fund Help Beirut Explosion Victims

Please help the families recover from Beirut Explosion that happened this last Tuesday on August 4th, 2020. I cannot begin to describe the damage and losses. My name is Seba Ali. My family, friends, and I were in the house (5km from the port). I was entertaining the kids and pretending that everything is excellent despite the consecutive crisis in Lebanon, from electricity, water, corruption, trash, currency, etc. I was making them homemade playdough when this explosion happened. The entire building slipped like an ice cube, a massive roar around us, then all front double glass shattered in a million pieces on us. We would've had one or two death and many severe injuries, but we are all miraculously unharmed.

With the money you are donating, I will personally take care of every penny to deliver to the families that lost their houses, lost everything, and need the whole world to care for them when the government failed to do so. A government that only creates a labyrinth of misery for its people. Please help me help the families. There are many injured kids, many innocent souls that are weeping and in the disbelief of what happened and what they have lost in just a few seconds.

Your generous donation will provide shelter, food, clothes, medicine, milk, beds, and all recovery supplies. Your donation will be managed with complete transparency, and I will be providing you with a list of items and pictures of what you have donated to the families and their location. Here is my phone number +961 71 746240 and Email Address [email redacted] for security purposes.

With the help of a team of students from the Lebanese American University, we were able to locate hundreds of severely affected families. Many families we know personally and friends or neighbors of families we know. Many of them are currently and unfortunately are extremely vulnerable. There are no boundaries to what could be done after this massive explosion. Please donate and share. No donation is too small. Every dollar goes a long way! 

The GoFundMe platform is free. A standard transaction fee of 2.9% plus $0.30 per donation allows for credit card processing and safe transfer of funds.

Thank you all so much. May God bless you and protect you always!
