On August 4, 2020, Beirut was destroyed because of the explosion of 2700 tons of Ammonium Nitrate, that were stocked in its port. The impact of the catastrophe is huge and the material damages it caused are disastrous. Beirut was left in ashes.
More than 150 were killed during the blast, more than 5000 were injured and dozens were lost. Hundreds of thousands were left without a roof over their heads.
This devastation coincided with the economic, political, and health crises that are ravaging our country, especially with the daily plunge of covid19 cases.
As such, Stouh Beirut Association, on the basis of its objectives of helping people, and poverty-stricken individuals who lack a breadwinner, have launched a campaign titled, بيروت شامخة عطول or Beirut Always Stands Tall that aims to rebuild our capital.
This campaign requires a lot of funding in order to restore or provide homes for the highest number of people who were affected and to compensate as much as we can, the losses of those who were deprived of their homes, their jobs, or their sources of income…
Our target is to restore and rebuild up to 50 houses that was destroyed or damaged by this explosion, and the number will certainly increase.
