Help Children at the St. Vincent de Paul School
Will you help provide clothing and bedding to needy children? Located approximately 15km from Beirut, the St. Vincent de Paul School provides education, food and lodging for 120 children with dire financial circumstances. The dormitories are in desperate need of new mattress covers, sheets, pillows and blankets and the children need new uniforms and shoes.
The sisters who run the school take great care to repair old uniforms and shoes as best they can, passing clothing down to the younger children, but this can only go so far without additional help. The request is for $27,800 to buy new bedding, clothes and shoes for these neediest children.

How to Help
You can support Lebanese students and others in need by providing educational and work opportunities where they are most needed. Your tax deductible donation can give hope to our sisters and brothers in Lebanon.
3 Ways to Help
1. Sponsor a Student – Your monthly contribution of $25 will provide an education and a future to an orphan or child in desperate need.
2. Support a Project – EOL has identified several urgent projects and we need your help! From providing warm blankets to orphaned children, to buying new computers or repairing badly damaged schools, you decide which project touches your heart.
3. Make a Donation – Your contribution will help EOL continue to give hope and support to children in Lebanon. You CAN make a difference!
How it Works
Donations are currently being solicited for selected projects managed by CNEWA in Lebanon. CNEWA is a 501(c)(3) agency that provides aid to the Middle East. EOL chooses the schools and projects and works with charities that are best suited to support and execute them. EOL does not handle any monetary transactions.
US tax deductible donations can be made online or by mailing a check** to:
CNEWA (Catholic Near East Welfare Association)
c/o Norma Intriago, 15th floor
1011 First Avenue, New York, NY, 10022-4195
**Important: Please make checks payable to CNEWA but specify “for EOL” in memo line.
