On Aug 4, 2020, two major explosions devastated a large portion of Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, killing more than 200 people and injuring thousands. Over 300,000 have lost their homes and dozens are still missing. The impact and scale of these explosions are unprecedented and have caused tremendous damage across the city.
