Lebanon Appeal 2021
The hope disaster cannot destroy
Life was already hard for Georgette, but last August’s explosion in Beirut left her struggling to make ends meet.
Christian grandmother Georgette told ACN: “I live in a poor quarter of the city and our situation is very bad, especially after the explosion. I live there with my three grandchildren…I am responsible for them and I don’t have anybody to help me, except for God, and the benefactors of ACN”.
Through the local Church, ACN has been providing food packages for nearly 6,000 families badly affected by the catastrophe – and is supporting the rebuilding of churches, convents and other structures badly hit by the blast.
ACN has helped people like Georgette, struggling to get by as Lebanon copes with a crippling economic crisis and the after-effects of the devastating dock blast. With Christian emigration on the rise.
“Just knowing that there are people thinking about us [makes a difference]. I give thanks to God every day. He has always guided me and my family and has sent us kind people to help us through these difficult times”. Georgette added.
