Saving Lebanon: More than 218 495 people got another chance
The explosion of nearly 3 000 tons of ammonium nitrate at the port in Beirut has had a long lasting serious impact on the whole Lebanese population. If it was not for organisations such as Caritas, a huge number of people would not have had a chance to get back on their feet, since they were living close to the poverty line already before the 4th August. The Prime Minister resigned soon after the blast, and since then the country has been practically without governance. The longer this lasts, the more difficult it is to see a way out of it.
