Beyrouth : une association au secours des animaux

ADVERTISING

Le Liban a été touché en plein cœur par l’explosion de son port, à Beyrouth, le 4 août 2020. Plus de 2500 tonnes de nitrate d’ammonium sont parties en fumée, rasant le port et soufflant une très grande partie des bâtiments aux alentours. La détonation a été d’une telle violence qu’elle s’est entendue jusqu’à Chypre, à 200 km.

 

Le bilan humain est encore aujourd’hui difficile à évaluer, car les secours sont toujours à pied d’œuvre pour retrouver des survivants, même si l’espoir s’amenuise de jour en jour. Les dégâts matériels, eux, sont colossaux, et le Liban est en proie à une crise majeure qui a poussé son gouvernement à la démission.

Mais les humains n’ont pas été les seules victimes de la déflagration. De nombreux animaux ont eu aussi été soufflés par le nuage explosif qui a détruit de nombreuses habitations. Aujourd’hui, une association, Animals Lebanon, tente de retrouver les animaux de compagnie qui se sont enfuis ou qui se sont retrouvés sous les décombres suite à la catastrophe, afin de les réunir avec leurs propriétaires, comme l’explique le magazine PositivR.

 

Maggie Shaarawi, vice-présidente de l’organisation, confie :

 

Notre but c’est d’aider les gens qui ont perdu leurs animaux pendant l’explosion. On les trouve et on les réunit avec leur gardien.

Les bénévoles s’aventurent ainsi dans les ruines des habitations, à la recherche d’animaux survivants. Certains se trouvent encore dans les habitations ravagées, et les membres de l’association doivent parfois se contorsionner pour les récupérer. Des stands ont également été mis en place, avec des photos des animaux, pour que leurs propriétaires
