Transportation – A Channel of Hope in Ukraine
Last October, the Archbishop of Lviv consecrated a newly built Pilgrim House. From the beginning of the invasion, this house opened its doors to refugees, and over the past six months it became home to more than 350 people.
Today, it is at capacity, hosting 50 people, including 19 children, between the ages of six months and 16 years.
But without a van, securing the needs of the refugees is impossible. When refugees arrive at the train station they need to be picked up, and when they decide to return to their homes, they need to be taken to the station.
Also, the refugees need to travel elsewhere to obtain documentation, and food needs to be purchased for all the home’s guests. A vehicle is vital to the house’s daily running and aid to the refugees.
ACN Donors Keep Lebanon Schools Open
Lebanon’s financial collapse has made it impossible for many parents to pay tuition fees. Semi-public schools are also experiencing a situation of great hardship because although they are entitled to government subsidies, the Lebanese state has not covered the costs in the past four years.
Funding hopes to benefit 30,000 students and more than 6,000 teachers in almost 200 schools.
ACN, which had already increased its aid to Lebanon since the massive Beirut Port explosion in August 2020, continues to prioritize the subsistence of Christian communities in Lebanon, the only Arab country where Christians play a significant role in society and politics.

But parents were aware of the crushing financial crisis that has sunk the country’s economy over the past few years. How could they not be? Many of them had found themselves unable to meet their obligations, including paying tuition.
“One Christian managed to flee and he is the one who told the story. This is what happened on the night of Sept. 6 and the following day – 11 people were murdered in total and they left a trail of destruction and a lot of fear.”
“We moved to a hill after the boundary wall of our mud house collapsed but it was too hot under the open sky. We are unsure of our future. The cotton crop has rotted after the first harvest, and the sugar cane is being ruined.”
“The restoration of this church is a symbol of resistance, to remain in this land, to bear witness. Pope Francis visited us just over a year ago, and he asked us to bear witness in this land.”
“every day you should touch a page of the Bible, each word of the Bible. Go line by line, line by line, and obtain this blessing with your fingers, because it is written in the Bible that there is a blessing for those who touch the Word of God.”
“The whole of society must be involved, and that includes the Church, which can contribute to the promotion of peace and stability for the country. We do what we can to spread love and peace to everyone.”
