Lebanon: The Important Work of Feeding Refugees

Lebanon has become a place of refuge for Syrians and Iraqis who are fleeing their homes due to violence and unrest. Many of these refugees have witnessed atrocities firsthand. They have lost loved ones, homes, livelihoods and more. Out of desperation and with great risk, they have fled to a foreign land in hope of finding refuge.

And it’s as simple as the fruit we eat. Feeding The Nations sent $5,000 to our partner Svetlana from Heart to Heart Ministry in the Ukraine. These funds allowed the ministry to purchase much-needed items and even special gifts, including apples, oranges and bananas for the elderly. Fruit that commonly sits on the counters of American homes (and even gets tossed instead of eaten when it over ripens) is a rare luxury. Some of the … read more>>
