Provide emergency medical relief to the victims of Beirut for $10


Lebanon is suffering. The government has declared a two-week state of Emergency. ​



What you need to know

Hundreds of people were killed and at least 5,000 were wounded in a massive explosion that shook Beirut on the 4th of August, according to Lebanon's health minister.

Hundreds have been reported missing, raising fears that the death toll will rise, the health minister said Wednesday. 

More than 300,000 people have been displaced from their homes. Authorities declared Beirut a "disaster city" and imposed a two-week state of emergency.

    "Due to the emergency and panic, I am worried that treating the wounded in hospitals and the loss of personal protection equipment supplies may have an impact on the number of coronavirus patients in the next 10 days," Health Minister Hamad Hassan said.

    They need your support to overcome this hardship. For just $10, you can provide emergency medical relief to these victims.

Lebanon before the explosion

Before this catastrophe, Lebanon was already suffering from a severe economic collapse. Families have had to go months hungry and have had to make other sacrifices to survive. Simple protections like masks and gloves were luxuries. More than 50% of the population was living in poverty

In addition to the explosion, power outages, overcrowded hospitals, COVID-19, and an economic crisis, Lebanon now has less than a month's worth of a grain.

It does not have the capacity to help all its citizens. They rely on humanitarian organizations like us.


"One who strives to help the poor is like one who strives in the cause of Allah," Sahih Bukhari 5038


Our work in the country has never been this critical.

SEMA US has been flat out supporting communities affected by the country’s staggering economic crisis, the Syrian crisis, and the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.

With the added urgency, we plan to continue extending our medical relief to as many Lebanese families and refugees as possible.

​YOUR GIFT CAN:

- Help address the medical needs of communities with services like first aid and free medications for common chronic diseases 

- Connect people with hospitals for surgery and work up

- Provide general medical care wherever possible in areas affected as well as under-served places

- Help undertake relief through the provision of services including, but not limited to, the provisions of hospitals, clinics, doctors, nurses, medications, and equipment

CONNECT YOUR GENEROSITY WITH THEIR SURVIVAL

We are calling on the international community to step up its support for humanitarian programming in Lebanon at this time.

For just $10, you can significantly provide health assistance to affected communities and under-served places.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit focused on providing healthcare for Syrian Refugees. The individuals we service lack the resources to survive and provide for their families. We are here with a purpose to serve. Join our movement by GIVING THE GIFT OF HEALTHCARE for Emergency Medical Relief for Refugees in Lebanon.
