The joy of this support and inspiration has not been extinguished by COVID-19. In fact, as a part of our collective work to provide food and supplies in this uncertain time, MERATH contracted these sewing groups to make over 14,000 masks for the families World Renew serve. This accomplished two amazing things for our communities in Lebanon. First, it provided much-needed income to the women in these groups. And second, by providing much-needed masks, it allowed refugee families to shop for essential food items more safely.
Moza said, “The mask sewing project is helping us so much! For starters, I am earning more money through it, which is much needed right now. But we are also aware that these masks will be distributed to families in need and help protect them from the coronavirus and prevent the spread of the virus in the country. This makes us feel very thankful and proud.”
We are honoured that in moments of crisis, we are able to come alongside women like Moza and her family. And are inspired by her drive for dignity, excellence and love. While this season has been intensely difficult, we still can see evidence of God’s faithfulness in everyday moments and in the midst of it all — love. And it is in the spirit of His hope, that we will never give up.
Please continue to support World Renew’s COVID-19 international response through your gifts.
