Many celebrities reacted to the tragedy, publicly expressing condolences to the families and friends of the victims. And 59-year-old George Clooney and his 42-year-old wife Amal decided to donate $ 100,000 to charities in Lebanon that provide assistance to victims of the explosion.
We are both very worried about the people of Beirut and the devastation they have faced over the past few days. Three charities provide significant on-site assistance: the Lebanese Red Cross, Impact Lebanon, and Baytna Baytak. We donate 100 thousand dollars to them and hope that other people will also help in any way possible,
– said in their official statement.
Beirut is the hometown of the wife of a Hollywood actor. She lived in the Lebanese capital for up to two years, and then her family left the country due to the civil war.
