1,800 Tons of TNT exploded in Beirut, Lebanon on August 4, 2020. This is the 3rd of top 5 most powerful explosions in the world after Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The blast killed hundreds, wounding at least 5,000 and leaving 200,000 men, women and children homeless. A local Lebanese seminary called ABTS has a university building with lots of dorms which are empty due to summer break and Covid19 - they want to equip the units to offer housing for 30 families (approx. 150 people), providing shelter and food for the coming months.
