Outreach in Refugee Camps — Lebanon
2015–2017 LWML Mission Grant #7
Grant Amount: $72,000
- To reach 15,000 women and children with humanitarian supplies, provide trucking, storage, and distribution for those items, along with printed materials, and for support staff.
The goals for this outreach are to share the Good News, provide relief to the destitute women and children, and to influence long-term growth of the Gospel. Working through the Middle East Lutheran Ministry (MELM) center they reach out to camps throughout the Belkaa Valley region of Lebanon. MELM will visit the smaller refugee camps to attend to their needs on a more personal and sustained basis. Many of the men still living are elsewhere in Lebanon and work in cities. The grant will pay for humanitarian supplies, printed materials, and logistics. The grant will impact the women and children at a time of dire need with a strong Christian presence.
