The August 4, 2020 explosion that rocked the Port of Beirut resulted in massive human losses: at least 188 men, women, youth and children were killed, an estimated 6,000 were injured, whereas several remain missing. About 47,000 apartments were damaged in a 2km radius extending throughout half of the city, affecting around 300,000 people. Most affected areas are Gemmayzeh, Karantina, Mar Mikhail, Jeitawi, Saint Nicolas, Zokak al-Blatt, and downtown Beirut, with sizable damage in adjacent neighborhoods. Educational and health facilities have not been spared: three large hospitals are out of service and more than one-hundred schools and health dispensaries are severely damaged. Additionally, the blast caused major traumas across all social groups, especially the most vulnerable ones such as children, women, youth, the elderly, LGBTIQ+, migrants and refugees.
