Bahrain’s Red Crescent has launched a campaign to raise donations and offer relief aid to Lebanon to mitigate the aftermath of a devastating explosion

Over 150 people were killed and 5,000 others were injured in Tuesday’s blast at the Beirut port that left large parts of the city in ruins. Lebanon, roiled by an acute economic crisis, has appealed for international help to grapple with the aftermath. Bahrain Friday sent a consignment of relief assistance to Lebanon as part of aid ordered by King Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa.




Mounting the “Bahrain Rushes to Beirut’s Help “campaign , the Bahraini Red Crescent urged citizens, expatriate residents and institutions in the country to donate for the victims in Lebanon.

The Red Crescent said it will make use of its resources and expertise of over 50 years in the field of humanitarian relief to ensure the delivery of donations to those who are in real need in Lebanon.

Meanwhile, the Islamic Society, a religious and charitable group in Bahrain, said it will offer relief aid worth 30,000 dollars to the Lebanese people.
