It's been close to a year since COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic, and the entire world has felt the effects. In addition to the coronavirus, 2020 brought increased hunger, natural disasters, war and other crises to neighbors who could scarcely weather another storm.

Beirut is still reeling from the massive 2020 explosion, which killed hundreds of people and left hundreds of thousands homeless — and vulnerable to COVID-19.

Thrivent Choice Dollars® are helping families like Rajaa Shehab's repair their homes and businesses, replace lost essentials and more so they can rebuild their lives.
