Our hearts go out to the people of Lebanon and we send our deepest condolences to those who have lost loved ones in the explosions in Beirut.
On behalf of UNDP, and joining the Secretary-General in his message, I wish for the speedy recovery of the thousands of people hurt and affected by this tragic incident.
The strength of the people of Lebanon continues to be tested. Suffering such pain, shock and loss will only amplify the devastating effects of the current economic crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic.
UNDP stands in solidarity with the resilient people of Beirut and Lebanon, ready to offer our support as they contend with times of enormous hardship. Together we can ensure that Lebanon will come out of these crises even stronger.
