Development and Peace has an emergency fund to provide aid to those affected by the crisis in Lebanon. 

Following the deadly explosions that devastated Beirut, thousands of people have been affected as 159 people have died, more than 6,000 have been injured, and over 300,000 people have been left homeless. Development and Peace, the official international development organization of the Catholic Church in Canada, is working with Caritas Lebanon to provide food, water, medical aid, and psychological and social support to those impacted by this crisis. You may donate directly to Development and Peace at: or by calling 1 888 664-3387. Any donations made to Development and Peace before August 24, will be matched by the Canadian government.


Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with all those affected by the tragedy in Beirut.
