Blast in Beirut Rock Christian Communities
Christians have been disproportionately affected by the blast, as the port is surrounded on three sides by Christian residential areas. Many evangelical churches and ministries are within the 10-kilometer radius of the blast.
Buildings in the 1 km radius suffered widespread destruction; the 5 km radius saw major damage; and damage was reported as far away as 10 km. Many of our ministry partner churches, facilities, and homes sustained damage. Even though churches and ministries suffered much damage, the church stands united in faith and purpose in this historic moment, responding in love and compassion as the hands and feet of Christ. We will be providing more updates as they come in from our ministry partners on the ground. You can support the Beirut Relief Fund today at - https://beirutrelief.funraise.org.
