EASTER EXCURSION – TO TEACH CHILDREN THE MEANING OF THE EASTER FEAST

On April 29th, 2018 a trip for 150 children was organized in cooperation with the Syriac Youth Union. The children who took part in this trip came from needy and refugee families from Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.

 

In buses the children were driven from Beirut to different places. At first the churches Saint George and Saint Elias in Mont Lebanon were visited. The final destination was the Sami Kudsi old people’s home in Atchaneh – Bikfaya, where the children were welcomed by nuns. In the garden of the old people’s home the children had a lunch and a colourful play and entertainment programme. The excursion, which started at 08:30, ended at 21:00. All children were picked up by their parents at the departure point.

 

Syriac Youth Union Lebanon and Syriac Cross thank Shai Fund for making this Easter trip possible.
