Friday, 4 August, 2023, marked the third anniversary of the horrific explosion in the port of Beirut that devastated the people of Lebanon. The tragedy pushed over the edge an economy and banking system already in serious decline. Inflation has soared to an all-time high and nearly half of the population now face food insecurity. 

Yet, during this instability and uncertainty, CNEWA was there. And we will continue to be there. 

In CNEWA’s world, where ordinary people suffer economic, environmental, political and social turmoil, CNEWA is able to help those who suffer the most, all thanks to people like YOU!

Your generous and prayerful financial support has helped heal the suffering of the most vulnerable.

Our longstanding presence in the Middle East, Northeast Africa, India and Eastern Europe, and our partnerships forged with the local Eastern churches, give us the unique opportunity to serve those who are in greatest need. 

They are why we serve.

By partnering with local parishes, communities of religious sisters and social service initiatives of Lebanon’s many churches, CNEWA brings hope and healing to those most in danger of malnutrition. Your donations have fed more than 10,000 families — especially the elderly — ensuring they will no longer face the crushing indignity of food insecurity daily.

Throughout the areas served by CNEWA, Catholic health care facilities provide women essential maternity care — ensuring safe pregnancies and deliveries and healthy infants — as well as cancer screenings and other important medical tests. In countries with high maternal mortality, labor and childbirth can be one of the most dangerous medical experiences a woman can face. Thanks to YOU, hundreds of mothers are able to have safe, healthy pregnancies, and their babies now have a much brighter future. 

Thank you for your continued support. YOU enable us to fulfill our mission in support of CNEWA’s response to human needs. 

But there is so much work to do.

We can only continue this vital and life-changing work with your prayerful financial contribution. Your gifts are crucial and necessary.

Please take a moment and support CNEWA in Responding to Human Needs. Help our brothers and sisters know they are not alone, that people around the world are supporting them, empowering them, praying for them.

By giving today, you can help build a more secure future for those exposed to the turmoil of today, whether they live in Lebanon, Armenia, Ukraine or Ethiopia. For people in turmoil, you can be an agent of hope. 

Thank you for your consideration.
