EMERGENCY NEEDS TO VICTIMS OF THE EXPLOSION IN LEBANON.

 

Dear Sisters and Partners in Mission,

 

We are sure that all of you followed the news of yesterday’s tragic explosion that happened in Lebanon. We encourage you to continue following the news.

With the pain of the people, the Sisters and Partners in Mission in Lebanon / Syria province feel it is essential to offer support to the victims and the families affected by the explosion.

 

Since yesterday, thousands of victims attempted to enter the hospitals but the hospitals were filled and still there is no room. The Sisters are finding resources to have a mobile dispensary available for these people.

Many families stayed without food and shelter and had to sleep on the street. The sisters are trying to help these people. First, to be cured and secondly, by opening their houses to welcome them or find other places of shelter.

 

We are sharing this information with you so that together we can contribute to help the affected people to rebuild their lives after this disaster.

The GSIF has created a webpage to share testimonies from the devastated city. They are launching a fundraising appeal and count on everyone.
