Immediately after a massive explosion rocked Beirut, Lebanon, yesterday, some Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontiéres (MSF) staff who were already working in the city went to health facilities to see how they could assist medics responding to the emergency. MSF is organizing a donation of wound kits to one of the facilities treating people injured by the blast. We are also evaluating whether patients who need further surgery can be referred to and treated in one of our hospitals after they have been stabilized. We are assessing the most pressing needs in hospitals and identifying additional ways we can assist people under such tragic circumstances.
