Children in Lebanon at Risk
Horrific explosions have ripped through Beirut port causing untold damage and destruction.
The latest reports indicate that 100 people have lost their lives, with at least 4,000 wounded and over 300,000 people displaced.
Our team in Lebanon is very worried about the children who have been caught up in the explosion. Children are among the casualties and we are concerned for those who are now traumatised, in shock and without shelter.
The explosion adds to what has already been a terrible crisis for the people of Lebanon, with COVID-19 and economic collapse threatening lives and livelihoods.
The COVID-19 pandemic has already overwhelmed hospitals, leaving health workers exhausted and hospitals working to overcapacity.
UNICEF is on the ground ready to deliver life-saving humanitarian aid, medicine, clean water and food to those in need.
