Crowd funding for injured and damaged people in Lebanon

People in Lebanon are facing a tragic situation on political, economic and environmental levels. Créations en urgence is an NGO based in Marseille – France and supports artists and intellectuals of all disciplines who have had to flee their countries under conditions of absolute urgency: war, political repression, sex discrimination, disasters, etc.

We are crowd funding to support those in Beirut devastated by the catastrophic explosion on August 4, 2020, which caused thousands of injuries and at least 80 casualties. The damages are enormous and hospitals have reached their capacities. 

The economic situation in Lebanon has been deteriorating exponentially since the revolution started last October.  More than half of the population is now living below the poverty line. With COVID, the country has become a prison, as Europe and many other countries have closed their borders to people flying from Lebanon. 

The collected money will be sent to NGOs working on the ground in Beirut to support injured and damaged people. We will post updates on where we are routing this funding as soon as we can clarify the most urgent needs – please stay tuned.

Every contribution is meaningful in this time of distress.

Thanks for your support.

CLICK TO SUPPORT!

Créations en urgence needs your support in order to exist. Each donation helps maintain artistic practice in a particularly fragile moment of transition that may nevertheless last quite some time.

We are experimenting with two different modes of action:

  • Direct contact between an artist or an intellectual and their mentor (a patron or another artist). Beyond financial contributions and the donation of artwork, this contact aims to strengthen the bond between mentor and mentee, and deepen their mutual investment.
  • Donor management, specifically managing private financial support by encouraging corporate and private sponsorship.

The sale of artworks and "goodies"

Créations en urgence relies on the support of other artists. Sales of artwork function in parallel to events organized by the organization and its partners.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to buy art works via the page "artites", postcards and posters illustrated by the artist Lena Merhej for the Kif Marseille Kif Beirut event.
