In response to the devastation caused by explosions in Lebanon's capital city Beirut on 4 August 2020, the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) will donate an initial S$50,000 towards the emergency response and medical support by the Lebanese Red Cross (LRC). The SRC will also launch a public fundraising appeal to support ongoing relief efforts.

Mr Benjamin William, Secretary General and CEO of Singapore Red Cross, said, "Our sincere and heartfelt condolences to the people of Lebanon and to the families of those who were injured or lost their lives in this tragedy. These are very difficult and challenging times as the world continues to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. The Singapore Red Cross will work closely with the Lebanese Red Cross and stands ready to support its efforts to assist those affected by the tragedy."

He added, "The blasts have affected thousands and disrupted the provision of critical services, such as medical services, made all the more urgent due to the pandemic. It is critical that we all come together to extend whatever support we can to enhance the relief operations. This will also help facilitate a quick resumption of essential medical services."
