Greiner Bio-One Supports Red Cross Emergency Aid in Lebanon

Unimaginable devastation has been left due to the devastating explosion of 2750 tonnes of ammonium nitrate in the Port of Beirut on 4 August.

The gaping 43-metre-deep crater is proof of the force of this blast. Authorities say more than 160 people have died, over 6000 people were injured and hundreds of thousands have been left homeless. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) registered an explosion equivalent to an earthquake magnitude of 3.3.

Donation to relief effort

This catastrophe has hit the crisis-torn country hard. The Lebanese Red Cross re-acted quickly and is providing vital emergency aid on the ground. At the same time, the Red Cross is gearing up to support reconstruction efforts and to provide further aid in the long term – whether it be the supply of blood, support with accommodation, expanding the medical emergency service or meeting any other needs. Since 2019, Greiner Bio-One has been a partner of the Swiss Red Cross, working with them on their project to develop a blood donor service in Lebanon. In order to make a quick contribution and avoid red tape, Greiner Bio-One decided to support the relief effort with a monetary donation.
