  3. Remove sanctions if you want to help financially, donations wont help because they are filtered by govt sanctions.

  4. My grand mother’s house was destroyed and her son is deaf and her daughter lost her leg

    • The Fun Fact Guy my all of the family of my moms side lives in Lebanon. My mom and my came to Canada in 1978 during the civil war in Lebanon, they were the only ones that’s made it in Canada without getting caught. The rest of the family of my mom stayed in Lebanon and they are not allowed to get out of the country. I know live in Canada, Quebec. Don’t act like you know the story of my life

      @temp if it rlly did happen which i doubt it did why are you posting it on a youtube comment section for likes

  5. 900mil to we charity but can only give 5mil

    • That stings doesn’t it. The Canadian government would give a lot more but we just spents billions trying to get through covid so I can’t blame them considering we need to start serious cuts to spending. That won’t stop me from donating and I think Canadians as citizens will donate much more.

    • @Michael we need to but wont, its not part of the liberals plan.

    Where’s Amazon, Facebook…Google and China?…where is that money?…This may just be the end of Lebanon. A new country may rise eventually… I don’t see Lebanon coming back. The cost of cleanup alone is going to be insane… only Amazon Facebook and Google have money to throw away.

    • But why tho? Their government is well-known for being corrupted, all the donation won’t go to the citizen anyway.

  9. 2020 💔

  10. We are praying for your country.

    Love from Philippines ♥

    We can give Israel billions. But only 5 million? Not hating on Israel neither. I just hope both nations could solve issues.

  12. Love light and prayers from Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

    • yea 5 million is alout i respect canada i live in canada rn but only 5 million do u know how much money they have still happy to see them helping lebanon
