Lebanon has been hit by a major disaster. The catastrophic explosion in the port of the capital Beirut claimed hundreds of dead, thousands injured and affected the lives of every resident. Lebanon needs our help. Here and now.
MAGNA has been operating in the country for many years. We treat children, adults, Lebanese and Syrian refugees, of whom there are more than 1.5 million in the country. We do not look at who needs help - we treat all nationalities, people of all faiths, simply everyone in need, without distinction. In a mobile clinic and a static medical facility. After the explosion, we have mobilized all our resources and started helping the hospitals in Beirut. Many have been destroyed, they are lacking staff, medicines, equipment, or beds for the wounded.
"People here in Lebanon have been facing a long-standing problem even before the explosion. Now the need for help, especially medical and psychological, provided by MAGNA is fully manifested. In addition, the destruction of Beirut's port means that food cannot flow into import-dependent Lebanon. So ordinary people are also threatened by the threat of hunger and the food crisis," says Denisa Augustínová, director of the operations section.
Lebanon, immersed in a crisis for many years, and all its people need our help. Each of your extraordinary gifts will save a human life. Whether you're sending a one-time donation or are going to help with us every month, you play an invaluable role in helping people in need.
