Lebanon - The Lutheran Church of Hanover launched the "Lebanon in the Heart of Germany" campaign to support the Lebanese people in their ordeal.
As it said, "Lebanon, wounded since the explosion of August 4, besieged by economic crises and mired under political corruption, constituted an axis of solidarity through German social networking sites for two weeks, to gather donations."
The campaign was launched from the German city of Hanover, the capital of Saxony, whose parish includes about two million and 800 thousand people, and it culminates in a joint prayer between the two evangelical churches in Lebanon and Germany on Sunday the 11th of this month.
The campaign headed from Lebanon by the head of the Supreme Synod of the Evangelical community, Reverend Joseph Kassab, and from Hanover, by Karl Meinster, the Archdiocese of the Lutheran Church in Saxony.
The "Together for Lebanon" campaign declared that it "worked to collect donations for the victims of the Beirut Port explosion and those affected by the Corona pandemic. It focused on the need to help provide educational opportunities.
And a safe environment for the children of Lebanon and Syria for them, in cooperation with the Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Lebanon.”
