Now things are even more difficult. Yasser Daoud, a Family for Every Child Changemaker in Lebanon, says: "The port and surrounding neighbourhoods are now a wasteland of devastated buildings and crushed vehicles. With smoke still rising at the blast site, rescue workers are digging through the rubble in search of victims trapped underneath." Please help us meet the urgent and basic needs of families who have been affected directly by the explosion by providing them with basic tools and materials to enable them to restore what has been lost by the explosion.
