The Weeknd Donates $300,000 to Lebanon’s Beirut Explosion Relief

After donating over $200,000 in June to several Black Lives Matter organizations; $100,000 to the National Bail Out Fund; and $500,000 each to both the MusicCares Covid-19 Relief Fund and to frontline workers at Scarborough Health Network, The Weeknd is back with another amazing charitable donation: $300,000 to the Beirut Explosion Relief.

The Weeknd’s manager, Wassim “Sal” Slaiby, shared the donation via his social media. Slaiby and his wife, Rima Fakih, were both born in Lebanon, and also donated $250,000 to the fund.

Lebanon’s capital of Beirut has been destroyed after the accidental explosion from the port area. The explosion killed more than 200 people and has left many without jobs, homes, and basic necessities.
