Here are some donation initiatives in Qatar to support Lebanon
Lebanon is in dire need of humanitarian aid and all kinds of assistance following the Beirut Explosion that caused large-scale devastation in the city.
With over 150 casualties and more than 5000 injuries, the aftermath of the incident has seen overcrowded hospitals, destruction of essential wheat stock, and disruption of entire districts.
In this hour of need, Qatar has come forward to lend a helping hand to the Lebanese people and express solidarity through a number of different donation campaigns.
If you're in Qatar and looking for ways to offer your support, here are some initiatives that you can contribute to:
