Bella Hadid has taken to Instagram to share her sympathy with the people of Lebanon after a deadly explosion took place in the capital Beirut on Tuesday last week.

The model posted a video of a woman in the city playing the piano among the destruction – and shared a number of slides of information about the explosion and the various charities she would be making a donation to.

"My eyes and heart are crying for you Lebanon," Hadid said. "I am sorry you have to endure this kind of disaster my brothers and sisters… I will be sending donations to the Lebanese Red Cross, as well as ALL of the smaller organisations in the last slide of this post. I hope you will join me."

Tuesday's deadly explosion – which has killed at least 158 people and injured thousands of others – came at an already strenuous time as the nation is suffering from an economic crisis made worse by the Covid-19 pandemic.

"We need to collectively support immediate humanitarian relief," Hadid added. "Stand up and stand together. I love you all out there. Beirut – I am wrapping you in a golden blanket of light and strength. I see you and support you. I am sorry."

If you are able to make a donation to help the people of Lebanon, head here for a list of organisations.
