Community Service Trip to the Bekaa!
On Monday, December 12th, a group of young people from Tahaddi participated in a community service event at an informal refugee settlement in the Bekaa. They spent the week preparing a fun program with crafts, games, and a story for the children living in this settlement. They also packed blankets and food parcels with toys for each of the 140 families. While they led sessions with the children, our two social workers, Dima and Razane, distributed the winter blankets, and the parcels to each family. We were proud to join our youth as they gave of their time and enthusiastically shared some of the skills they had learned at Tahaddi Education Center. The words of Khalil Gibran come to mind: "It is when you give of yourself that you truly give." Special thanks to Wissam Rajha for putting on a wonderful magic show for the children despite difficult conditions!
