Lebanese artist Fatima Dia is auctioning her painting of last week’s tragic Beirut explosion, “Rising Angels,” to help those affected by the blast which tore through the capital on Aug. 4 from the city’s port area, killing over 135 and injuring thousands more, and she said that she will donate 100 percent of the proceeds to people who lost their homes and were affected by the blast, and everything will be broadcasted live on her page to guarantee the transparency.
Dia’s family has been affected by the explosion. Her sister, she said, works close to the port area and was injured. But luckily their situation is much better than that of the thousands of people left homeless.
