The government of Canada announced a 1:1 match for funds donated to the Lebanon relief until August 24. Funds donated to PWRDF are eligible through our membership in the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. PWRDF stands in solidarity with the people of Lebanon, and we pray for all who are responding to this disaster. Many people are still missing and tens of thousands have lost their properties. PWRDF has been in contact with partner the Middle East Council of Churches (MECC) to express our sorrow, solidarity and prayers. PWRDF has pledged $25,000 to the ACT Alliance appeal for Beirut. ACT is in contact with their implementing members on the ground in Lebanon to determine how best to respond.
To donate to PWRDF in support of the victims of the Beirut explosion, please visit the online donation page at https://pwrdf.org/give-today/and make your gift in Emergency Response, indicating Beirut explosion in the message box.
