Beirut Collection

On Tuesday 4th August, a massive explosion ripped through Beirut, killing
157 people, injuring 5,000, damaging 50% of the buildings and leaving
300,000 people homeless. Bishops’ Appeal has launched an emergency
fund to support those affected. It is has long supported Christian Aid and
Tearfund partners in Beirut, in their work with vulnerable communities, not
least people living with disabilities, people who are refugees, people who
have or are exposed to Gender Based Violence and people in need of basic
humanitarian assistance such as food and shelter. A retiring collection has
been taking place on the last three Sundays of August and the proceeds
will be forwarded to Bishops’ Appeal.
