Responding to the Beirut explosion
We are supporting our church partners on the ground as they are responding to some of the many needs identified after the Beirut explosion: food supplies, hygiene items, crisis management training, etc. We need all the help we can get as about 300,000 people have lost their homes in the explosions.
ready meals distributed to affected families in Beirut
Today, we distributed meals in Beirut to people heavily affected by the explosion. When we visited them, they were so busy cleaning what is left of their homes that they hadn't eaten anything for the whole day. They deeply appreciated our gesture.
FIRST AID TRAINING
partners on the ground trained in first aid and crisis management
Before this training, we did not know how to survey our surroundings. Today we learnt concrete things and tips to make sure our team is safe before helping other people. I feel better equipped and prepared to go back and continue serving the people affected by the blast.
vouchers distributed to blast affected households
The vouchers are being distributed to households that have been displaced or heavily affected by the explosion in Beirut. Some are for food only and some can be used to buy both food and hygiene items.
The hygiene kits contain soap, hand sanitizer, washing powder, laundry detergent, and other hygiene items. They will be distributed until the end of December, mostly to blast affected families, to help ease their financial burden and protect them from the spread of COVID 19.
food boxes donated to ABTS's guesthouse along with hygiene items
We have been working nonstop to prepare our guesthouse to welcome families that lost their homes in the Beirut explosion. We are thankful to MERATH, who gave us some food and hygiene packages. Our prayer is that our labor of love will provide some comfort and hope to these precious families.
