At least 28 people have been killed and more than 80 injured in an explosion of a fuel tanker in Akkar, North Lebanon. Witnesses reported that about 200 people were at the site, desperate to collect fuel after the Central Bank announced that it was ending the fuel subsidy.
With no electricity and no fuel for generators, families in Lebanon are living in the dark, unable to power their homes and sleeping on verandas to fight the heat.
Those critically ill will soon be cut off life-saving oxygen machines, ambulances cannot operate their vehicles to save lives and hospitals are having to turn back burn victims as they are unable to treat them.
AusRelief is on the ground distributing essential food and medical items to support families in need.
