Donate to the Lebanon Humanitarian Needs Appeal


The humanitarian needs in Beirut, Lebanon are immense following the recent explosion, which has exacerbated an already dire humanitarian situation in a country that is currently hosting the largest number of refugees per capita and is struggling with environmental and economic uncertainties.

Some of the most urgent needs on the ground include:

  • emergency medical services, such as transportation to get critical patients to hospitals for urgent care;
  • shelter, food and water; and,
  • personal protective equipment as responders provide life-saving care during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Lebanese Red Cross and the Palestine Red Crescent Lebanon Branch are working to coordinate emergency relief efforts to get help to the people affected as quickly as possible.

National Bank is supporting Red Cross efforts on the ground.

The Red Cross/Red Crescent is working to coordinate emergency relief and recovery efforts and get help to people in affected areas as quickly as possible. Money raised will enable the Red Cross/Red Crescent to prepare for, respond to and help individuals in Lebanon affected by humanitarian needs now and as the situation evolves. Current activities are mobile health outreach, support to health facilities, and strengthening of health systems. These activities may evolve based on emerging needs.

Money raised for this appeal will enable the Red Cross to prepare for, respond to and help individuals in Lebanon affected by the ongoing humanitarian crisis, as well as the recent explosion. The cost of fundraising, such as processing donations, issuing receipts, or reporting back to donors will not exceed five percent.

Your donation will help the most vulnerable in Lebanon through these difficult times.

On behalf of National Bank, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude for your donation during these trying moments.

"When man finally learns to control the elements... When the winds will be quiet and the earth cannot be torn apart...When there will be no loneliness... no destitution... no war... When the last hungry man, woman or child is fed... Only then will there be no need for the Red Cross."

– Albert Schweitzer, Nobel Peace Prize winner
