Help for Beirut, per Massive Explosion

Help for Beirut, per Massive Explosion

Postby 63falcon on 05 Aug 2020 18:35

Possibly Gio or Eugenio/Team Italia could contact Stewart and find out if he knows of a good reputable charity based out of/in Beirut or any Lebanon that is good for contributing to relief in wake of this terrible, MASSIVE explosion Beirut suffered yesterday at the Port.
In addition to loss of life I last heard at least 1000 individuals have suffered injury, and then there are all the structures (businesses & homes etc) and car destroyed as well. I am dodgy about International Red Cross, with past mis-managements, funding going for admin instead of actual relief efforts.
If I find one, I will also post on here at some point. There is a Maronite Church in city south of here, and I plan on contacting the office there to find out if they would have an organization or two to recommend.
Thank you all.

Doctors without Borders had boots on the ground in Beirut at the time of the explosion and immediately offered assistance.

That is good option, Con. A and if St Elias Maronite has any I will pass.
By the way hope there is some future where we Mutters can have pre-show meet up again ! Miss you all :-)

Stewart reads this message board, even if he doesn't write.
You can also contact him on his Twitter account and let him know about your proposals.
