A Special Plea to Donate For a Great Cause

Hi there my lovelies! Hope you all are doing well and staying safe. Today, I will be short and ask for just one thing, to donate for a great cause. You probably saw the news of Beirut Explosion that has killed 137 people and injured over 5,000.

The disaster was preceded by a large fire at the Port of Beirut, on the city’s northern Mediterranean coast. In videos posted on social media white smoke could be seen billowing from Warehouse 12, next to the port’s huge grain silos. Shortly after 18:00 (15:00 GMT), the roof of the warehouse caught alight and there was a large initial explosion, followed by a series of smaller blasts that some witnesses said sounded like fireworks going off.

About 30 seconds later, there was a colossal explosion that sent a mushroom cloud into the air and a supersonic blastwave radiating through the city.

According to BBC News,Beirut Governor Marwan Abboud said as many as 300,000 people had been made temporarily homeless and that collective losses might reach $10-15bn (£8-11bn).

Seeing this broke my heart. Hospitals, who were already dealing with the impact of COVID-19 now are overwhelmed with the victims of the explosion.
