The Church of Ireland Bishops’ Appeal 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.
In the wake of the horrific explosion in Beirut last Tuesday, which has killed more than 150 people, injured 5,000 and left 300,000 people homeless, Christian Aid and Tearfund partners are assessing the damage and the needs in the city.
