Goal

A major explosion ripped through the Beirut Port on August 4 and devastated most of the city, killing at least 220 people, and leaving 7,000 wounded and more than 300,000 homeless.


The explosion knocked down walls and blew out windows, leaving behind decimated homes that most people cannot afford to rebuild. 


AVSI, present and working in Lebanon for more than 20 years in emergency and long-term development programs, immediately decided to help the most vulnerable families. 


You can join us in the #LoveBeirut campaign supporting the poorest families, who were already struggling to make ends meet or with one breadwinner.


What we are doing with your help:


·  AVSI technical team is visiting the working-class neighborhoods of Geitawi, Bourj Hammoud, Dora, Quarantena, Furn el Chebbak and, in collaboration with local officials, will identify vulnerable families who need help to make their homes safe.

·  The team will identify the needs and related costs of the repairs.

·  Small private contractors, selected, supervised, and financed by AVSI, will repair the houses.

·  AVSI is also making available specialized assistance to family members in need of psychosocial support due to the trauma experienced because of the explosion.
