Lebanon Emergency: Tdh is supporting children

After the deadly explosion that shook Beirut on Tuesday evening, Terre des hommes is mobilizing to help the Lebanese population. Our local teams are currently in Beirut to provide emergency aid, with a particular focus on protection and psychological support for children and families.

The toll of the disaster is still unclear but we know that over 200 people have died, more than 5,000 injured and dozens of people are missing. Already affected by a serious economic crisis, social tensions and paralysed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Lebanon - which hosts more than one and a half million Syrian and Palestinian refugees - is on its knees. The people of Lebanon need your support!

"Children no longer have a sense of safety and security. Their hopes, dreams, and future plans have been shattered."

Leen Farhat, Child Protection Specialist in Lebanon
