Lebanon 2020 Flash Appeal (August) - 14 Aug 2020

The Beirut Port explosions on 4 August created significant immediate humanitarian needs and severe long-term consequences.

Building on existing humanitarian response efforts, a comprehensive, effective response to this emergency requires three phases of activity. Such a plan should quickly transition from immediate humanitarian relief into recovery, reconstruction and eventually longer term economic recovery.

This humanitarian Flash Appeal focuses on the first phase and the early parts of the second phases of the response, and the activities covered will save lives, protect the most vulnerable and set the stage for subsequent longer term reconstruction and economic recovery, which constitutes a third phase.
