We wanted to let you know about a specific need that has arisen within our ministry partner, FEAL, following the explosions in Beirut last week. We have only just received information from them about how they are responding to those in need.
On 4th August, two explosions occurred in the port city of Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, causing at least 200 deaths and more than 7,000 injuries. The news also reported that over 300,000 Lebanese affected by the blast became homeless overnight. Lebanon was already struggling with an unprecedented economic crisis before the disaster, with families pushed into poverty and hunger.
