Tony, Rached, Ayman, Ghattas, Elie, Fady and Charbel aren´t given the care or support which they deserve. The homes have few public funds at their disposal and as a consequence most of the institutions are overcrowded and have trouble finding suitable personnel. The nuns and caretakers work with huge amounts of love, endless energy and ensure that the key elements of day to day life are accomplished (feeding, washing, diaper changing and so on). They truly are modern day heroes.continue reading
Lebanon is currently experiencing one of the most serious economic and financial crises in its history. The situation has been exacerbated by the outbreak of the coronavirus and by the explosion of August 4th, 2020. This is a particularly difficult time for our friends in the homes. Not only are they suffering from the fact that over months they have had no visitors, no therapies or holiday camps, but their basic care is also at risk. The price of medicines, diapers and other care items has already doubled and many relatives can no longer bring their usual monthly nappy and care packages to the homes. The sisters face the immense challenge of continuing to care for the physical and mental well-being of their protégés in this crisis situation.
Following the tremendous success of the last years, it is clear that our friends in Lebanon are brimming with potential and talent. They are very capable of learning a huge amount and benefit from a tailored education. This chance must not be taken away from them due to a lack of funding. Thanks to your donation, the whole life of our friends can be greatly improved.
Unfortunately, since mid-March 2020 the school has to be remained closed due to the pandemic. But with vaccines being distributed in Lebanon and spring coming closer, we have reason to believe that our friends will be able to go back to school soon. In the meantime, we are supporting the school with 50% of the usual school fee. The specialized school is donation funded, with no support from the government.
Thank you for your support!
