Funds raised through this platform will provide immediate support to colleagues in the World Bank Beirut country office whose homes have been damaged by the August 4th explosion. WBG staff (and others) can donate here.
As a result of the explosion in Beirut on August 4, 2020, thousands of people have been injured and displaced. World Bank staff, too, have suffered injuries and damage to their homes rendering many uninhabitable until damage can be repaired. An e-give initiative has been activated for a disaster relief drive to support NGOs on the ground. In addition, this FUNDLY platform has been activated for WBG staff (and others) who wish to provide immediate financial support directly to their colleagues in the Beirut office. Please help with whatever you are able to. We will report back to all donors on funds and what they have been used for. For any questions, please contact Anne Njuguna at [email protected].
