Food for the Hungry responds to the Middle East refugee crisis.

By August 16, 2006

Lebanon (MNN)–Ongoing insecurity in Lebanon continues to prevent relief agencies from accurately assessing the number of people affected by the war.

On August 14, the U.N. dispatched nine relief convoys to provide relief supplies throughout Lebanon, according to OCHA. For the first time in more than a week, U.N. relief convoys traveled to Tyre, delivering drinking water, food, hygiene items, and medical supplies. Additional convoys traveled to Sidon, Tripoli, and Hasbaya to deliver relief supplies and conduct road assessments.

The teams are assessing the needs and movements of the population and providing water, blankets, mattresses, and other relief supplies.

Food For the Hungry also continues to maintain its presence in the aftermath.

Working alongside partners, they’re providing key response by supporting mechanisms for the provision of health and medical services to the thousands of refugees.

Pray for the teams as they work to be the hands and feet of Christ in this crisis.
