Giro555 National Action Day for Beirut has started, 5 million euros donated | NOW

Giro555’s National Day of Action, which raises money for the victims of the explosion in the Lebanese capital Beirut, kicked off Friday morning. Due to the corona measures, the action day has a different character from national collection campaigns in the past and will largely take place online. More than 5 million euros had been donated before the day started.

Presenter Irene Moors, presenter of the YouTube platform StukTV Thomas van der Vlugt and Giro555 action chairman Garance Reus officially opened the action day at 7 a.m.

A small action center has been set up in Studio 47 in Hilversum. Because of the COVID-19 virus, no audience is allowed. A small panel of well-known Dutch people, including Giel Beelen and Jörgen Raymann, is present to receive donations. NPO, RTL, Talpa Network and Facebook support the action day.

Visiting the action center to present checks is also not possible due to the corona virus. That is why the so-called Giro555 collection box travels from the action center along Hilversum, Blaricum, Almere Strand, Naarden, Bussum and Leidsche Rijn in Utrecht.

The action day can be followed via a live stream. The livestream is presented alternately by Moors, Daphne Bunskoek, Liesbeth Staats and Tom Kleijn. Performances by Dutch artists can also be seen. During the day there will be a link with presenter Danny Ghosen, Giro555 correspondent Marcel van der Steen and other Dutch people in Beirut.

Final standings will be announced around 11 p.m.

The first standings will be announced around 1 p.m. The announcement of the final standings of the National Action Day will take place around 11 p.m.

The money raised will primarily be used for emergency relief, including emergency shelter, water, food and toiletries. Young people also receive psychosocial support and families with an income below the poverty line receive financial support.

The explosion at a port warehouse in Beirut at the beginning of this month killed at least 158 ​​people and injured more than 5,000 others. It is also estimated that a quarter of a million inhabitants of Beirut have become homeless. In the warehouse, 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate were stored unsafe.
