Ministry Description
Driven by the compassionate heart of Jesus Christ, Heart for Lebanon exists to see lives changed and communities transformed. We are passionate to reach the lost and broken, advance peace, justice, and equality and empower the marginalized and rejected. Heart for Lebanon provides relief to redeem the dignity and address the needs of refugees and displaced people, empowers local communities to overcome poverty, dependency, injustice and marginalization and transform lives of at-risk children emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually.

The New Horizons Community Center is an initiative in the South of Lebanon to reach out to Muslim Bedouin and Gypsy communities that have been shunned by society. The center opened with a school for children who have never attended school in their lives. Now dental and medical care are provided to these communities and sewing classes have begun for the women to earn a sustainable income rather than sending their children to the streets to beg. Change a whole community for Christ!
Heart for Lebanon serves in a politically volatile region with many security challenges. We believe that being "the hands and feet of Jesus Christ" we need to be one of the first to respond to man-made and natural disasters as they arise by providing for people's basic needs of food, safety, and shelter. Once material needs are met, healing and restoration of hearts can begin. Iraqi and Syrian refugees in Lebanon are the focus of our humanitarian aid and showing the love of Christ.

We believe that a healthy Christian environment that is aimed at serving children and youth is the hope and future of Lebanon. We provide partial financial assistance to needy students at Christian schools and with that, character formation with the goal to educate, empower, and inspire a student to develop in the image of Christ; emotionally, intellectually, spiritually, and socially. Our focus is to serve children and their families regardless of their ethnic or religious background.
