GALVANIZING EMERGENCY SUPPORT FOR WOMEN IN BEIRUT, LEBANON
On August 4, 2020 a massive explosion struck the city of Beirut. Our longstanding Lebanese partner KAFA began its emergency response immediately - the explosion destroyed the lives of many women and children who were supported by KAFA’s programs. We launched an urgent fundraising drive to help KAFA provide food, housing, and other emergency services to affected women and families. We received an outpouring of contributions from 57 donors in 12 countries and regranted over US $50,000 within weeks. Our ability to galvanize strategic and timely support for front line women’s organizations is what makes Donor Direct Action unique.
