For the many of you who know and love Beirut, and in response to the outpouring of love and questions of how to help, we have set up the Family to Family - Beirut Relief Fund to get aid directly to families in dire need of help today.
The economic crisis and hyperinflation means that getting money and aid to those that need it is harder than ever.
My sister Sarah and her family are currently in Beirut and safe, thankfully. They are now working hard to help families there who are in desperate need of help; supporting families who have lost everything and are in need of food and medicine now.
We have been overwhelmed by your incredible response and we are continuing to make and distribute food parcels in destroyed downtown Beirut.
Family to Family has also now partnered with on-the-ground NGO's: Beit el Baraka and Nusaned who have over 300k registered destitute families in dire need of food and supplies.
We've just launched our website - visit it for more information on Family to Family - Beirut Relief Fund.
Please also follow us on social for on-the-ground updates from Beirut:
Thanks in advance for your support and please lobby your MP to get government aid out to Lebanon now.
Much love ,
Reemah & the Sakaan family
