The Beirut Blast Response

The mapping below documents organisational and individual solidarity initiatives and interventions in the aftermath of the Beirut blast on August 4th, 2020.

Each initiative is mapped according to a set of categories, including type of initiative, area of intervention, geographic area covered, needs assessment conducted, and identified priorities. The below data aims to enhance transparency and collaboration among civil society actors, but also strengthen coordination, in order to reduce duplication and identify priorities for action.

Data was collected by Lebanon Support (through Daleel Madani), in collaboration with the Lebanese Humanitarian and Development NGOs Forum (LHDF) from August 19 until September 20. The data will be updated on an on-going basis. If your information is missing, kindly fill in this survey.
