Moom Thahinah, Multimedia Reporter

It’s been 23 days since an explosion tore through Beirut’s port, killing more than 200, injuring around 5,000, and leaving 300,000 people homeless.

Lebanese officials say the blast was caused by the detonation of 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate fertilizer stored in a warehouse. Despite the horrific aftermath, the people of Lebanon are staying strong by taking the initiative to clear the wreckage and lighting a sign of hope in this catastrophe. As Lebanon reels from the explosion and subsequent protests, world leaders have pledged to help rebuild the country’s capital.
