Effective immediately, all donations to SCARS will be directed to disaster relief efforts in Lebanon following the devastation in Beirut. I have been talking to an author from Lebanon on Publish0x for some time now. Thanks to her, I know this explosion is just the most recent trouble for Lebanon. Their government is a miserable failure, their central banks are entirely corrupt, they have no electricity other than gas-powered generators, there are constant shortages of food and other necessities, their economy is in total collapse... The place is a mess. I want to help any Lebanese citizen I can to get out of that hell on Earth. I am trying to coordinate with said author to develop a trustworthy chain of distributors for donations to the people and organizations that have the greatest need. These people are performing surgeries in the streets under the light of mobile phones. If you can help at all, please donate. If you can't donate, you can still spread the word!
