Libanon: Over the last years, as in many parts of the world, refugees from various countries have flooded in Libanon. Many of these young people and families are fleeing from the neighboring Syria into the Beirut area. Camps have been set up in and around Beirut. This also means that the children of these families now make up the demographic of the schools and communities in the area - this includes a school and church that Kirche in Aktion has a long-time partnership with in Beirut.
We will fly to Beirut from the 20th to the 30th of July and spend a week in this school running and leading a kids camp. This is a time to assist the school, encourage the children, and continue to help foster a healthy atmosphere in a diverse group of kids. As well as that, we will help the church in any visits and work in the refugee camps in and around the Beirut area.
Our goal is to support the school and church there in a sustainable way. This should happen above all in the form of monetary and material donations. Our goal is to generate 10,000 €.
Help us strengthen our long-time partnership with this school and bless the children living in this school, as well as the refugee families that we encounter and serve.
