CALL FOR DONATIONS TO LOCAL INDEPENDENT CIVIL SOCIETY ACTORS IN LEBANON

The blast and destruction of Beirut on the 4th of August 2020 has caused the death of more than 200 persons, over 6000 wounded, dozens disappeared, and more than 300,000 families have lost their homes. Local civil society actors and initiatives are, as usual, the first responders. With global calls for support and aid to Lebanon, it is essential that these go towards independent civil society actors and initiatives.

You can find below a list of some selected actors* with their donation links. Lebanon Support will be updating this list progressively.
