How will my donation help?
Unicef is on the ground, helping the thousands of vulnerable children who urgently need support in the aftermath of the disaster.
We’re providing safe drinking water and hygiene kits for children and families in the city. We’re helping set up counselling to support children who are experiencing trauma and those who have lost loved ones.
We’re working fast to support children in emergency accommodation, ensuring they have mattresses, blankets and towels. And we’re replacing the thousands of PPE equipment lost in the blast, so health workers can stay protected and keep children safe.
Just $52 could help provide an emergency water and hygiene kit for a family.
Children in Beirut need our help.
The catastrophic explosions which tore through Beirut, Lebanon on Tuesday 4 August, killed more than 100 people and injured 4,000. Around 300,000 people have been left without homes.
Unicef fears that children are among the casualties.
Already battling against coronavirus and economic instability, the disaster in Beirut adds to the crisis for the people of Lebanon. The pandemic has left hospitals overwhelmed and frontline workers exhausted.
Unicef makes sure more of the world’s children are fed, vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We have done more to influence laws, policies and customs to help protect children than any other charity. We get things done. And we’re not going to stop until the world is a safe place for all our children.
We receive no funding from the UN budget. We rely entirely on voluntary donations like yours to fund our vital work to protect children in danger, transforming their lives and building a safer world for tomorrow’s children.
Please give what you can and donate online now. Thank you for your donation.
