Emergency Response: Lebanon
Help The United Church of Canada's Mission & Service partners respond to the tragic explosion in Beirut.
On August 4, 2020, a massive explosion rocked the city of Beirut, Lebanon. The explosion caused immense destruction and the death toll continues to rise.

Samer Laham of the Middle East Council of Churches (MECC) tells the United Church:

“Thank God that MECC[‘s] team is safe but the situation in Beirut is beyond imagination. You cannot believe the level of destruction in many historical areas in Beirut […] Beirut needs billions of dollars to rebuild what it lost in one minute […] and maybe it will take some years to be recovered from this disastrous event."

The United Church of Canada has been in direct contact with Mission & Service partners in the region, including MECC,  to provide support wherever it is most needed. Make a gift today to help those affected by this tragedy in Beirut.
