The gaping 43-metre-deep crater is proof of the force of this blast. Authorities say more than 160 people have died, over 6000 people were injured and hundreds of thousands have been left homeless. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) registered an explosion equivalent to an earthquake magnitude of 3.3.

Donation to relief effort

This catastrophe has hit the crisis-torn country hard. The Lebanese Red Cross reacted quickly and is providing vital emergency aid on the ground. At the same time, the Red Cross is gearing up to support reconstruction efforts and to provide further aid, whether it be the supply of blood, support with accommodation or expanding the medical emergency service. Greiner Bio-One has been a partner of the Swiss Red Cross, working with them on their project to develop a blood donor service in Lebanon and has made a financial donation to support the relief effort.
