The government of Canada announced a 1:1 match for funds
donated to Lebanon relief between August 4 and 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.
