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."
My eyes and heart are crying for you Lebanon. Over 150 people dead , thousands injured or missing... 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 organizations in Beirut from the last slide of this post. I hope you will join me. 300,000 people have been displaced and have become homeless. This explosion is coming during one of the hardest times for Lebanon in history... with an unprecedented economic crisis and famine, political unrest , homelessness , the pandemic and the unemployment rate plummeting , we NEED to support the people of Lebanon. Helping from within, through these smaller organizations can help pin point what necessities are most needed and where they can be sent, exactly. We need to continue to speak on this crisis, #PRAYFORLEBANON but most importantly , We need to collectively support immediate humanitarian relief. 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. ❤️🇱🇧 ❤️ ارك الله فيك…

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."
