Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) has announced another massive program of aid to help Beirut rise up from the ashes following the explosion in August.

The latest grants by the charity for persecuted and other suffering Christians mean that in total ACN has committed €5 million (£4.53m) in the wake of the 4th August 2020 blast, which killed more than 200 people, with at least 6,000 injured and more than 300,000 made homeless.

The aid, announced yesterday (15th October), mostly provides repairs for church buildings in the immediate vicinity of the blast which caused particularly serious damage to a historic Christian quarter of the Lebanese capital.
