Scotland helping Lebanon

On August 4, a powerful explosion struck Beirut and left extensive damage in its wake.

The deadly blast has killed over 135, left over 80 people unaccounted for and has made over 300,000 people homeless.  

The explosion was at their main port which was were all their import and export was handled, this leaving them without a a port big enough to handle any day to day resources. 

The area spread the size of Edinburgh and has cause devastation across the whole country. 

I have started this fund raiser as my husband and son are Lebanese and we have family who have been effected by the explosion. We have seen the devastating impact this has had on the whole of the Lebanese community and we want help them to rebuild their lives in anyway they can. 

Join me in helping Beirut through this tragedy by donating today. 

All the money will be donated to the Lebanese Red Cross who's mission is to promote peace, serve the society, and alleviate human suffering with neutrality and without any racial, sexual, social, religious or political discrimination.
