On 4 August, a large amount of ammonium nitrate stored at the port of Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, exploded, causing at least 190 deaths, three reported missing, 6,500 injuries, US$10–15 billion in property damage, and leaving about 300,000 people homeless. The tragedy is considered one of the most powerful non-nuclear explosions in history.

Nadine raised a total of S$710 and donated the sum through the Singapore Red Cross Society.
