Home of Hope – Christian Orphanage, Beirut Lebanon


A big thank you to everyone who has helped with our request to collect  and / or donate warm clothes for the children at the Home of Hope.  We now have 115kgs of excess baggage that we are taking out to Beirut on 3rd March. The clothes have been donated from a wide range of people – St Gregory’s school, Thomas Gainsborough School, Rotarians, individuals, churches and so on.  We ask for your prayers as we take them to the home and see them distributed to the orphans.

We recently heard from the home that with so many displaced children, they do not have enough beds. For $10 a small bench-type bed can be purchased. If anyone is able to donate a few pounds towards this we would be very grateful. We will then hand the money over to the home in order that they can purchase these beds locally.

Here is some latest news that came out from the Home of Hope which I think makes all this hard work seem so worthwhile:

What type of people leaves a 6 yrs old kid alone on the streets at night? 
This young kid was selling sweets during the day & sleeping alone in a building foyer at night because he couldn’t reach his house in Tripoli.
This kid just arrived to Home of Hope, he’s in a warm bed & a safe place.

(Tripoli is in the far North of the country – over 43 miles away – and is now out of bounds due to the Syrian conflict.)

As the number of kids is increasing at Home of Hope Lebanon, the needs are increasing as well. SINGLE MATTRESSES ARE NEEDED. If you have used or new mattresses, it will be most appreciated if you can donate them. Your mattress will be a warm & comfortable place for one of many kids.
Thank you & God bless you all.

(We have already raised enough funds to buy 10 mattresses!)

We will be pleased to update you on our return from the Lebanon. Once again, our sincere thanks for your generosity. Please do keep us all in your prayers.

Thank you.

Roger & Jill Pullan, Glyn Jones and Lynda & Peter Sebbage
