An explosion in the port of Beirut, Lebanon, created a shock wave that engulfed the city in early August 2020. A massive 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate, commonly used as an agricultural fertilizer, ignited in a warehouse at the port and left behind a path of devastation and rubble. Crushed buildings, smashed vehicles, and shattered glass filled Beirut’s streets. “Half of the city’s windows and doors . . . are broken,” shared a contact in the country. Structures within five miles of the explosion sustained damages and broken windows.
The effects of this destructive blast will likely bring long-lasting struggles for thousands of people. CAM is researching ways to provide food, hygiene items, house repairs, and other ongoing aid. If you would like to help bring hope in this time of desperation, your contribution will be a blessing. Please join us in prayer for the people of Beirut, Lebanon. We desire that the aid provided will point them to Christ, the ultimate Deliverer and Savior.
