As the financial crisis worsens, 78 percent of Lebanon’s population lives in poverty. Even food is becoming scarce, and many industries cannot function with the low levels of fuel available in the country.
COVID-19 continues to be a problem, especially without hygiene supplies available. But remote work or learning can be difficult as well since many people don’t have electricity for the internet most of the day.
Joe Willey with SAT-7 USA says the SAT-7 Lebanon office has a generator but has to conserve fuel. Many of the staff work from home to keep programs like SAT-7 KIDS, SAT-7 ARABIC, and SAT-7 ACADEMY on the air. “There have been special programs, with prayer times and testimonies that have focused on the Lebanon crisis. And SAT-7 continues to offer personal follow-up with those who contact our audience relations team. That is a unique way that SAT-7 can help and reach out to people who you really need hope.”
Many people have reached out, saying they found hope in Jesus through SAT-7 programming. Read some of the replies here.
