About this item

At the beginning the painter Fatima Dia did this painting as a way to express her feelings towards the tragedy of Beirut's explosion.

When the painting went viral, she decided to sell it in an auction and donate 100% of the amount to the people who lost their homes and were affected by this tragedy; especially those with limited resources.

The auction deadline is August 30, 2020 at midnight (Beirut time).

The winner and money distribution will be broadcasted live on the painter's instagram page @fdia_art to guarantee full transparency.

Update at 8:51pm, 9 August 2020
