2020 Lebanon Refugee Engagement
- Mar 21 2020 - Mar 28 2020
About the Journey
Through our partnership with Heart for Lebanon, this global(x) team will head to Lebanon. The country has a rich history, gorgeous landmarks, and warm, hospitable people. It’s also facing a refugee crisis that’s considered the worst humanitarian crisis since World War II. Heart for Lebanon was created to meet the spiritual and physical needs of some of the most vulnerable families and children.
We need a high-energy, compassionate team to help bring aid and hope to the refugee settlements in Lebanon. From Atlanta, this team will fly to Beirut, Lebanon’s capital city, and will likely stay at a nearby hotel or the new center in Bekaa Valley.
This global(x) team will work alongside the Heart for Lebanon staff to bring humanitarian aid to these refugee families. During your visit, you’ll help at-risk children by facilitating children’s programs and help families by visiting with them in their temporary homes and distributing food.
Globally, this is an area and a group of people who are in extreme need of hope, support, and aid. If you’re ready to serve the families and children who are at the center of the refugee crisis, apply now.
New for 2020!
You're busy enough, so we're taking some things off your to-do list! We've reduced the number of forms you need to complete, simply by adding a few questions to the global(x) application. We'll also collect your credit card information during the application process so that we can automatically credit your deposit to your account once you're placed on a team. And, no more paper copies of your passport needed, just upload it in your application or to your ServiceReef profile, and you're done!
global(x) is a part of North Point Ministries. global(x) provides meaningful journeys for teams to serve at-risk people in communities around the world. We want to help combine faith and service to help make life better for those in need.
