Provide the greatest impact possible by giving where it is most needed.  

What are the needs?

Lebanon faces the worst of challenges in decades. The refugee crisis resulting from the war in Syria has impacted Lebanon for the past ten years. Political instability has destroyed the economy. Social unrest and extreme devaluation of the country’s monetary system have left people in a state of economic collapse.

With the devastating explosion in the Port of Beirut, the people faced further unimaginable and mounting struggles. All the while, COVID-19 continues to add extra pressure to these people's lives. The day-to-day realities of reduced electricity and the struggle to find medicine and food have become overwhelming. The people of Lebanon are in a vulnerable state of drastic change and insecurity. 

What can be done to help?

CBM is supporting the work of Arab Baptist Theological Seminary (ABTS) which continues to be very strategic for the church in the Arab world. ABTS has a vast impact in the MENA region (Middle East North Africa) by training leaders and equipping them to proclaim the gospel and serve in a complex, sometimes hostile, context. ABTS has also provided support for people who are still struggling after the explosion, both remotely and onsite, with clean-up, food distribution, and counselling for people in need.

Local church leaders, many trained at ABTS, are addressing the Syrian refugee relief efforts. CBM is subsidizing local Lebanese partners, social services, and urgent health care needs, as well as teaching about disease prevention and hygiene regarding the pandemic.

How will your raised funds be used?

Raised funds will support the work of ABTS in equipping leaders and resourcing communities in need during all this turmoil.

Funding will support local churches with identified areas of need, such as food supplies, mattresses, blankets, shelter, hygiene supplies, masks and psychosocial support for both refugees and locals.  This is such a broad crisis that resources will be needed to help in almost every possible way. 

The Church has an integral role to play in the transformation of communities through the good news of Jesus. Well-equipped leadership is key to making this a reality, and so is resourcing local ministry. With more funds raised, more leaders can be equipped and more resources can meet needs. By helping to raise funds you can make a difference in Lebanon.
