Impact for Lebanon:

Lebanon is suffering as major catastrophies have all collided at once.

* The economy is collapsing. Businesses are closing permanently. housands have lost their jobs. Prices are skyrocketing, and the currency is collapsing.
* The coronavirus is disasterous. Hospitals are overflowing;
* The recent explosion in the port of Beirut killed hundreds andleft thousands injured and hundreds of thousands homeless. Schools, churches, and homes have also been severely damaged.

Many parents are no longer able to pay their school fees. In this time of crises, children need eduation more than ever.

As a result of the challenges mentioned above, Dr. Glenn Russell and Pastor Steven Manoukian have decided to raise funds in order to support students.  

Through IMPACT FOR LEBANON you can make a positive difference:

$25 can provide a school and sports uniform.
$50 provides books and school materials for a child for the school year.
$150 provides transportation (busing) to school for a student for a year.
$500 provides school fees for a student.
$700 assists a student completing their secondary education.

Additional donations can help repair the classrooms and replace the dozens of shattered windows in the schools.

No administrative costs: 100% of your donation goes directly to the project, with no overhead costs.

Your donation will go directly to the project at these two schools in Bouchrieh and Mouseitbeh. The funds will be used as specified and full accountability is established.  The schools finances are independently audited by the higher church organization.
