Soeur Georgette Tannoury en charge du dispensaire Saint Antoine de Beyrouth et partenaire d'ACISJF, et Soeur Hanan Youssef représentante au Vatican témoignent de la terrible explosion du 4 août dernier à Beyrouth et sollicitent notre aide.
 
"… Sinon, plus qu'une tragédie. Un 2eme. Hiroshima. Je n'ai pas de mots pour en parler... Je sais que la souffrance des gens est lourde, les personnes gardent le silence ou sont incapables de parler. On n'a pas fini de découvrir des personnes sous les ruines, tous des jeunes. Hier, funérailles des trois jeunes de la même famille.... Nous essayons de secourir les vivants...Ce matin, j'ai passé mon temps à donner des paquets de ravitaillements aux familles. La solidarité est grande, les gens partagent ce qu'elles ont... Notre Centre médico-social assure les médicaments aux personnes incapables d'en acheter etc...etc... Une fois encore, merci...continuez de prier pour nous."
