H&M Foundation donates 100,000 dollars to support Beirut

H&M is providing aid to those in need. The retail group’s
charitable arm, the H&M Foundation, has announced a donation of 100
thousand dollars to the Red Cross to support the organization’s relief
efforts in Beirut.

The donation is in response to the August 4 explosion in the city’s
port, which was equivalent to a 4.5 magnitude earthquake and has left
over 200 people dead, over 6,000 people injured and many more still
missing.

“Lebanon was already experiencing a serious economic crisis, and
the country’s healthcare system was under heavy pressure due to the
Covid-19 pandemic even before this emergency,” Diana Amini, global
manager of the H&M Foundation, said in a statement. “The effects of
this explosion are devastating. Lives are claimed, people are injured
and left homeless overnight.”

The H&M Foundation’s donation will focus on first aid, psychosocial
support, emergency shelter and related water, sanitation and hygiene
services and providing food and other household needs.
