How to help Beirut explosion victims

A wounded man is checked by a fireman near the scene of an explosion in Beirut on August 4, 2020.

At least 100 people are dead and 4,000 wounded following an explosion in Lebanon's capital city of Beirut. The city is decimated with thousands of residents left homeless, a medical system already strained from coronavirus and up to $5 billion worth of damage.

The Lebanese Red Cross is sheltering the displaced and providing medical treatment for the injured.
