You can deliver vital rehabilitation care to people injured in the blast, as well as psychosocial support!
Explosions rocked Lebanon's capital on August 4. The blasts injured more than 6,000 people, and claimed about 200 lives. Damages to buildings and infrastructure left 300,000 people homeless. Among the buildings damaged are six hospitals and 20 clinics. More than 70,000 workers are estimated to have lost their jobs as a result of the explosions, with direct implications for 12,000-plus households.
Humanity & Inclusion teams have worked in Lebanon since 1992, most recently in aid of Syrian refugees, especially those with disabilities, serious, conflict-related injuries, chronic illnesses, and the effects of aging.
Our 100-person team in Lebanon, including physical therapists, psycho-social, and livelihood experts, are leading this critical response. Our emergency response will last for months as we see beneficiaries through to recovery. Post-surgical physical therapy, and psychological first aid, in particular, are vital components of our actions.
Your gift, whatever the amount, can help provide desperately-needed care.
$100 (or a monthly gift of $8) can treat the injured and support them in the weeks ahead
$500(or a monthly gift of $40) can contribute to long-term rehabilitation to help an injured child walk again
Together we can make a difference
