Amade joins in with Les Amis du Liban to provide emergency and proximity support to the victims of two explosions in Beirut, Lebanon.
In just a week, Les Amis du Liban managed to gather nearly six tons of essential goods (food, hygiene kits, nappies...) that Beirut's inhabitants currently lack.
100’000 euros worth of goods left the Principality in two containers on August 20th. More than 3’000 families were identified by the Lebanese Red Cross to receive a package directly from Mrs Bouran Hallani, President of Les Amis du Liban.
AMADE joined forces with the Princely Government, the Monegasque Red Cross, and Monaco Aide et Présence to support this initiative. 55’000 additional euros were mobilised through this partnership, and will be used for the following:
- Medication purchases for pathologies such as chronic or cardiovascular illnesses, diabetes, and other physiological disorders, for the benefit of the mobile care units set up by the Lebanese Red Cross.
- Purchases of medical equipment (hospital beds, consumables) for the benefit of field hospitals set up by the Lebanese army to face the inflow of wounded civilians.
