Beirut Emergency AppealMake a Donation
The catastrophic explosion that ripped through the port of Beirut on 04 August has left over 200 dead, 5,000 injured and an estimated 300,000 homeless - with numbers continuing to rise.
Hospitals, medical centres, schools, offices and homes have been destroyed. Thousands of people have lost their jobs, businesses and their source of income.
The blast destroyed Lebanon's main grain stock, leaving less than a month of staple food supplies for the entire country.
This humanitarian crisis comes at a time when the country is already facing economic catastrophe and fast-rising levels of Covid 19.
Our Jewish values obligate us to reach out and offer our assistance to people in desperate need.
We will be working with a credible, trusted partner who can pass our exacting standards and scrutiny, operate independently of government and local authorities and ensure that all support we provide gets to those that need it.
Your immediate support could help us provide emergency relief such as:
- Food assistance
- Shelter materials, accommodation support or repairs to make homes habitable
- Distribution of essential items such as cooking materials, kitchen sets, blankets, mattresses, hygiene and dignity kits
We will prioritise the needs of women, children, the elderly and people with disabilities.
As British Jewry’s international emergency agency we are proud to have the endorsement of key communal agencies for this appeal.
