Non-profit and NGO KAFA thanked Hollywood a-lister Meryl Streep for donating $25,000 to Lebanese women injured in the blasts that destroyed Beirut Port, leaving 200 killed and hundreds of thousands displaced and injured.
KAFA tweeted: "Thank u #MerylStreep for ur generous contribution to Kafa’s relief work supporting women who lost their houses,or have been injured/traumatized as a result of Beirut explosion.
Your contribution of 25,000$ is not but an additional proof of your support of women’s rights."
The Devil Wears Prada star was not the only celebrity who pitched in and supported the Lebanese people in their tragedy; many stars donated and participated in spreading awareness about the massive needs that Lebanon requires right now, such as Bella Hadid, The Weeknd, The Clooneys, Rihanna and many more.
