Artists & athletes together behind Beirut

On Tuesday, 4th August 2020 we stood with the rest of the world and watched as an explosion in downtown Beirut ripped through the capital. The event caused more than 200 deaths, 7,000 injuries and left more than a quarter of a million people homeless. In total the damaged caused amounted to more than USD 15 billion.

To help the people of Lebanon, who are currently experiencing one of the worst crises in its history, several artists, musicians and athletes are joining forces to raise much needed funds through a crowdfunding campaign on the wemakeit.com platform.
