Pastors in Lebanon

Helen Manson has just spent around a week on the ground in Lebanon visiting refugee families and the pastors who are helping them. She talked with Luke about the differences between the refugee conditions/situation in Lebanon vs South Sudan.


Refugees in Syria

The Syrian Army ended its 29-year occupation of Lebanon in 2005 leaving many Lebanese fearful and resentful of Syrians. So it’s profound that for the past six years Tearfund’s local partner—essentially a network of church pastors—have dedicated their lives to helping Syrian refugees; a people they, like most Lebanese, had ill-feelings and fear towards. It’s a poignant example of ‘loving thy enemy’ and ‘loving thy neighbour’. Ian spoke to Luke about the history, the general situation, and how through Tearfund's local partner, they are helping Syrian refugees.
