Famous animal rights activist, Seb Alex initiated a crisis relief program to provide vet care for injured animals in Beirut blast and plant-based foods to the underprivileged and people who have been directly impacted by the 2020 massive explosion in Beirut, Lebanon that left an estimated 300,000 people displaced from their homes, 6,000 injuries, at least 177 deaths, and US $10–15 billion in property damage.
After days of phone calls, emails, messages, chats and hours of organization, Seb Alex finally managed to collect funds and team up with Lebanese Vegans to start preparing donation boxes of plant based food, as well as vegan ready meals and sandwiches supported by many vegan businesses in Lebanon, local animal rights activists and volunteers.
Thanks to all the donations, Seb, along with active members of Lebanese Vegans community, vegan businesses and volunteers, managed to treat the animals that have been injured in Beirut blast and distribute a large quantity of healthy plant-based food and more than a thousand vegan ready meals and sandwiches to struggling people in Beirut. They also took ready meals to both Kenyan and Ethiopian workers who are protesting outside their consulates.
On August 18, 2020, Seb Alex stated on his social media pages:
I would not be able to carry out this campaign if it wasn’t for the amazing community of activists in Lebanon, the people behind the scenes, you all know who you are and I’m so happy you exist ❤️ together we have distributed more than a THOUSAND ready meals and during the next days over 800kg of boxes full of rice, lentils, pasta, tomato sauce, bulgur, vermicelli, beans, chickpeas, juice and water. Massive thanks you to @lebanesevegans and anyone involved in helping humans and other animals during these tough times…Seb Alex
