Shaken to the core
The massive explosions in Beirut on 4 August happened so suddenly, and were so extensive, they made global news. If you were shocked by seeing pictures and videos, imagine witnessing it first-hand. Imagine having to practically rebuild your life while dealing with the fear, pain and confusion by something so extreme.
Early estimates indicated that more than 200 people had been killed and 5,000 injured (according to BBC NEWS*).
Scars are only just starting to heal one month on since the blast (according to SKY NEWS*).
