Fund-raising project supporting Embrace the Middle East

You may recall that in August last year there was a massive explosion in the port of Beirut. 80,000 children lost their homes. 700,000 homes were damaged. All this while Covid-19 was rampant. Unemployment and inflation soared. Over 75% of the country’s grain reserves were lost.

Embrace the Middle East (www.embraceme.org<www.embraceme.org>), has been supporting Christian partners there, who are working with and helping the most vulnerable and traumatised families.

Levette Callander has written a book to raise funds for Embrace’s work there. It will be available from the 17th March but can be pre-ordered now. Every penny of the £15 cost will go to help the people of Beirut.

The book is called “Taste and See” and is a collection of stories from friends, family and others about journeys, in different parts of the world, which impacted them in some way. (Round-the-world cyclist Mark Beaumont is a contributor.) There are also quotes, photos and around 50 recipes related to many countries.

If anyone would like to order a copy (or more than one!), please message/email Levette at levettejc@gmail.com<mailto:levettejc@gmail.com> . She can deliver within West Dunbartonshire at present. Postage and packing, for one book, will be £5. Books can also be collected from her home after Launch Day, 17th March.
