LL’s campaign for Beirut

On Tuesday, August 4, 2020, several small blasts followed by a catastrophic explosion occurred in the port area of the Lebanese capital of Beirut.  According to news reports, 2,750 tons of the highly explosive fertilizer, ammonium nitrate, improperly stored in a hangar was the cause.  Immediately, local and international aid organizations began mobilizing.

As of the writing of this, more than 160 people have been killed, and over 6,000 have been injured.  Food, water and shelter are desperately needed.  In addition to Lebanese nationals, foreign nationals are reported to be among the injured.  In a sign of an incredible act of humanity and solidarity, the hashtag #OurHomesAreHome began circulating in Arabic and English on social media with ordinary citizens opening their homes to the approximately 300,000 left homeless.
