Lending Money to Non-Muslims who are in Need

Is it permitted in Islam to lend money to Non-Muslims who are in need of money? They might use it for things that are not permitted in Islam. Is this ok?

It is permissible to lend money to Non-Muslims on condition that the amount is not used for wrong purpose If the lender Muslim is aware of the misuse of money for wrong reasons than it is a sin which is prohibited as Allah Almighty says: Help each other in righteousness and piety, and do not help each other in sin and aggression. Fear Allah. Surely, Allah is severe at punishment. (Surah Al Maedah-2)
