This Tuesday at the port of Beirut, Lebanon’s capital city, an explosion killed over 100 people, wounded over 5,000, and displaced nearly 300,000 people from their homes. In response to this horrific event and other losses and tragedies in our personal lives, UniAmerica Insurance would like to share a few organizations working to support the Lebanese community during this time.
- Lebanese Red Cross The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a not-for-profit organization that depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission. For more information, please visit redcross.org or cruzrojaamericana.org, or visit us on Twitter at @RedCross.
- Save the Children-Lebanon The world’s leading charity for children, Save the Children has been on the ground in Lebanon responding to children’s needs, every day and in times of crisis, since 1953. We work to ensure Lebanon’s children can realize their rights, raise their voices and access the services they need to meet their basic needs – including education, protection, shelter, food security, livelihood opportunities and health care.
- Union Relief and Development Associations We aspire to become the safest refuge for all the disadvantaged individuals in Lebanon. Working to the highest of international professional standards, we thrive to serve as a role model in sustainable humanitarian actions, and more essentially, we reinforce a human development system that would lead to building a renewed civil society across Lebanon.
