On 4 August 2020, a large amount of ammonium
nitrate stored at the port of the city of Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, exploded, causing at least 220+ deaths, 6,000+
injuries, US$10–15 billion in
property damage, and leaving an estimated 300,000 people homeless.
the aftermath of the Beirut port explosion, Nusaned immediately prepared an
emergency response plan with the backing of its team and thanks to the
generosity of its donors.
Nusaned is focused on the “Roofs That Shield” and “Goods in Need” programs in the aftermath of the explosion and consequent displacement of those affected.
Nusaned is in dire need of funds to be able to rehabilitate destroyed homes and shops. Our initial aim is to rehabilitate 2,050 homes and shops with an average estimated cost of $5,000 per unit, in addition of funds to be able to provide families with immediate aid in terms of food, hygiene and clothing essentials. Our aim is to continue supplying individuals and families with vital necessities until they can get back on their feet.
