On August 4, a massive explosion in Lebanon’s capital, Beirut, shook a nation already in political, economic and pandemic turmoil.
Matching donations is now closed but we are still accepting financial gifts.
Nabil Costa, CEO The Lebanese Society for Educational & Social Development (LSESD) reports,
Our partner school, Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS) has opened its doors to welcome over 40 people who have lost their homes and is helping with clean-up and food distribution for workers who are deployed to the explosion site. Local churches also ask for support as they serve those in need. They are preparing to respond to identified areas of need such as food supplies, mattresses, blankets, shelter, hygiene supplies, masks and psychosocial support.
This is the time to be God’s light and hope to our Lebanese brothers and sisters.
Please give generously to support emergency response in Lebanon through CBM, our partners, and local churches in Beirut.
We are grateful for the faithful response of our Canadian Baptist family in times of crisis and to represent your compassion to the world.
