The monster explosion at Beirut's port has "chattered children's sense of normalcy and robbed them of safety," says UNICEF regional director Ted Chaiban during a press conference in the al-Karantina neighbourhood. A year after, one in three families in Lebanon have children still showing signs of trauma, according to a UN survey. The August 4, 2020 explosion killed more than 200 people, wounded at least 6,500 others and damaged swathes of the capital.
