In August 2020, and Lebanon’s capital city Beirut was rocked by the most powerful explosion the world has ever seen after Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Thousands were killed by the explosion, and hundreds of thousands were left homeless. On top of that, people in Lebanon now have to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic, religious divisions, widespread corruption, and more than half of them live in poverty.
