In partnership with International Medical Corps, Zaman raised more than $450,000 through the Lift Lebanon Campaign to support the more than 300,000 people displaced by the Aug. 4th explosion in #Beirut. International Medical Corps used the funds to mobilize the initial medical response and aid efforts as outlined in this video.
However, as a global NGO, International Medical Corps is able to leverage those donations at 30:1 through institutional donors such as USAID, the European Union, and the World Bank, meaning Zaman’s contributions will unlock more than $13.5 million to support our neighbors in need in Lebanon as recovery efforts continue.
While the Lift Lebanon campaign has concluded, donations will still be accepted via Zaman’s website, and the need will remain great as COVID-19 exacerbates ongoing political and economic crises in Lebanon. Moving forward, International Medical Corps' focus will be on expanding access to quality and affordable health services, mental health services and protection for vulnerable groups, including women & girls and those who are differently abled.
