There was a huge explosion in Beirut, the capital of Lebanon.
The Capuchin Father Paweł Bielecki, who is well known to many of us and works for many years in Lebanon, wrote in his email:
“It is bad, but we have to live on ….
We have lost everything, only the walls are left.
We all have minor injuries, but the whole town is in ruins …, people lost everything. Only the walls are left of the clinic. 2 nurses are dead.
The stench is terrible from these chemicals.
They still find the dead in buildings this morning.
I survived 2 wars in Lebanon, it was not like that yet.”
As a priest and doctor, Father Paul always helped all people in need. His clinic is located in a completely dilapidated Christian neighborhood that is adjacent to the port. Let’s help his work and the people of Beirut financially. Donations can be made on the account:
