A heartbreaking reality
Despite the enormous donations pouring into Lebanon, 60,000 badly-impacted families are being missed in the chaos and left to find their way out of an impossible catastrophe… Samira’s family is one of them.
Samira, 50 years old, unemployed, lives in a low-income neighborhood in northeastern Beirut located only 2 kilometers from the epicenter of the explosion at the port of Beirut.
The explosion caused significant damages to the building, built by Samira’s grand-father in the early 60’s, threatening the lives of five different families living there.
“It all happened in a matter of seconds – what felt like a nightmare suddenly became a reality; we almost lost everything. There are five kids and three elderly people of which one is disabled, the situation is alarming! ”, she says.
Injured and with no financial means, Samira has desperately reached out to us to help her rebuild her home ahead of the winter season.
