Beirut Crisis Response

The American Task Force on Lebanon is working to mobilize the Lebanese-American community and friends of Lebanon to support a number of critical projects.

 

Within 24 hours of the explosion in Beirut, ATFL began outreach efforts to Congress, the Administration, and humanitarian organizations to get immediate humanitarian relief to the Lebanese people including organizing airlifts of medical supplies on a people to people basis with more than 50 organizations and individuals contributing resources and expertise.
