Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced an additional $25 million in aid to help the people of Lebanon struggling to recover from last week's devastating explosion in Beirut.

Trudeau says the additional funding is intended to help trusted humanitarian aid groups "support emergency medical services and provide shelter, food, and other essential items for people impacted by the blast."

"We will continue to monitor this tragic situation, and work closely with the international community and humanitarian partners to identify how we can continue to support the people of Lebanon and respond to their urgent needs," a government statement released late Monday said.

More than 150 people were killed in the blast, thousands more were injured and an estimated 300,000 residents were left homeless.
