We join our prayers with those around the world praying for the people affected by the terrible disaster in Beirut.
Thousands have been injured and hundreds of thousands of people have become homeless. Much of the food in Lebanon is imported due to limited production capacity, and many of these food reserves were destroyed by the explosions—exacerbating food insecurity in a country already affected by COVID-19 and a severe economic crisis.
PWS&D has been providing support to Syrian refugees and host communities in Lebanon through ACT Alliance and Canadian Foodgrains Bank partners for several years. These partners are on the ground, actively assessing the situation to determine how best to respond. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
