“Every little thing counts in a crisis.” Jawaharlal Nehru
The Outspoken Narrative is a docuseries that I am creating with a group of my high school friends. This series aims to have conversations about important issues taking place across the world. Each episode we tackle a different issue. We tell the story through the facts, and through the first-hand experiences of people on the ground. This is the outspoken narrative.
Our second episode focuses on the Lebanon Crisis.
On August 4th, an explosion in Beirut, Lebanon resulted in over 160 deaths. This was one of the worst explosions in history following Hiroshima and Nagasaki. In this episode, we interviewed Buzzfeed reporter Mareena Emran to hear about the best ways to help Lebanon during this time of crisis.
We take a close look at the long-lasting instability of the Lebanon government and economy. Through the episode, we detail how the Lebanon government has been ineffective for its citizens. We also give valuable information on how best to donate to Lebanon and which organizations to support.
