Since the explosion, we’ve been on the ground in Beirut working with local partners to support some of the worst-hit families and children, distributing food, hygiene kits and essential supplies such as sanitary pads, nappies, hand sanitiser, soap and face masks. We are also providing psychological support to children who were injured or left homeless by the blast. 

Plan International is particularly concerned for the wellbeing and protection of children and adolescents who have lost or become separated from family, especially girls, whose lives have been turned upside down by the disaster. Our experience shows us that girls and young women are often worst affected during crises, facing increased threats of violence and sexual exploitation.

More than half a million children in Beirut were at risk of hunger before the explosion and food shortages will likely increase. Recovery from this devastating crisis will be difficult and long, especially with the ongoing impacts of coronavirus. We need your help. Please donate today and help families in Lebanon rebuild their lives.
