Joining Forces In Time Of Crisis To Assist in Relief Efforts in Beirut

In light of the disaster that hit Beirut, the Lebanese diaspora organizations SEAL,  LIFE,  LebNet — joined by Jamhour Alumni and the non-governmental US based Kuwait-America Foundation — have formed a unified humanitarian effort under the Beirut Emergency Fund 2020.

On Aug 4th, 2020 a massive explosion rocked Beirut causing catastrophic humanitarian, economic and public health crises. Over 200 people were killed, over 6,000 thousand wounded, and adding to this tragedy, thousands of homes have been shattered and destroyed leaving 300,000 Lebanese displaced with no shelter.

Our aim is to amplify coordination, outreach and impact.

The Beirut Emergency Fund 2020 is prioritizing the most pressing needs on the ground: Hospitals, Medical and Mental Health Support, and Shelter, Rehabilitation, and Reconstruction. Recipient organizations undergo a rigorous vetting and due diligence process. Disbursement of the funds is strictly governed with full transparency about recipient organizations.

To date about $6.56 Million have been allocated as follows:

$2.86 Million for hospitals/medical and mental health support
$3.6 Million for rehabilitation and reconstruction
$100,000 for other needs

Beneficiary Organizations are:
Geitawi Hospital, Hotel Dieu de France, St George Hospital, Saint Joseph des Soeurs de la Croix Hospital, Assameh birth & beyond – Karantina Hospital
Medical and Mental Health Support: APEG (Association pour la protection des enfants de la guerre), arcenciel, Embrace, Happy Childhood Foundation, Himaya, Lebanese Red Cross, Lebanon Needs, CDLL (Cénacle de La Lumière)

Additional NGOs are currently in the vetting process and we will be regularly updating the list.

The demand for support is dire; more relief aid is needed to help the Lebanese cope with this tragedy.

We urge you to keep sharing, to donate now and, wherever possible, to utilize your companies matching programs to match your individual donations.
