With your generous support, Trócaire is responding to the urgent needs on the ground in Beirut. Thousands of people have been affected by the devastating explosion. Our local partner is providing emergency supplies to people, providing medical assistance and helping to clear the rubble.

As emergency services begin to clear rubble and debris the death toll continues to rise in Beirut. At the time of writing over 130 people are reported dead and at least 5,000 injured. The damage has left up to 300,000 people homeless.

With your generous support, Trócaire will be able to respond immediately on the ground. Through our local partner Caritas Lebanon, we can assist with cleaning up rubble and debris, and are distributing essential supplies to those affected by the blast.

YOUR SUPPORT CAN HELP WHERE THE NEED IS GREATEST

Our local partners are providing emergency supplies to people, providing medical assistance and helping to clear the rubble.

“There are a lot of dead and a lot of injured, and the health situation is likely to worsen quickly, as the toxic gases can cause additional health problems” says Rita Rhayem from Caritas Lebanon.

“The situation is critical and this is the first time that we have experienced a situation of such great magnitude. It is apocalyptic, but we don’t stop and we will carry on in order to help all those in difficulty”.

Please support our emergency appeal to help rush urgent supplies and assistance to those who need it most. Your generous support and solidarity can provide hope in this time of crisis.
