CAFOD Beirut Emergency Appeal. A Message from CAFOD Director Christine Allen This disaster has only added to an existing social and economic crisis in Lebanon. Under the strain of coronavirus, hospitals and doctors across the country were already reporting shortages of vital medical supplies and PPE. The explosions in Beirut have put them under even greater strain. Please continue to pray for everyone affected by this terrible incident.
With love and prayers, Christine Allen
