“The damage is immense. When you walk through the streets, there is destruction everywhere and homes and businesses are destroyed. In a humanitarian sense, the needs are on par with what you might see immediately after an earthquake has struck.” - George Antoun, Mercy Corps Country Director for Lebanon
Make a gift to our Lebanon Fund to help us as we rush to provide small business owners with emergency assistance to rebuild and help them recover. These businesses are a lifeline for local communities, and employ thousands of people in the areas damaged by the explosion. Your gift today will help provide urgently needed support to families and communities during this crisis.
Mercy Corps teams are already on the ground where help is most needed. We work in more than 40 countries to help people and communities prepare for, protect against and recover from crisis and disaster. Last year, Mercy Corps reached more than 28 million people around the world with lifesaving and life-changing assistance.
If Mercy Corps receives more funds than are needed for this purpose, excess funds will go into our Where Most Needed Fund to support our work around the world.
