Update from our partners KAFA in Beirut | Oxfam GB |



The 4th September marks one month since the explosion at the Port in Beirut. The massive blast killed over 180 people, injured more than 6,500 and displaced some 300,000 residents.

Oxfam Partner KAFA, is distributing packages to vulnerable families affected by the August 4th explosion at Beirut port, a massive blast which killed over 180 people, injured more than 6,500 and displaced some 300,000 residents.

KAFA, which means “enough” in Arabic, is a feminist, secular, Lebanese, non-profit, non-governmental civil society organisation seeking to create a society that is free of social, economic and legal patriarchal structures that discriminate against women.

According to a recent UN report on the Beirut blast, shelter provided after one loses their home often results in overcrowded conditions, thus raising other risks like sexual and gender based violence.
