Why are we riding?
Lebanon is currently hosting over 1.2 million registered Syrian refugees and about 500,000 Palestinian refugees. A generation is being born and raised within confined camps that have poor facilities, low hygiene and extremely limited options for education and positive social experiences.
Through partnering with humanitarian and aid agencies, the Bible Society program "Reconcile!" aims to offer hope to refugee children through an interactive drama presentation about reconciliation and forgiveness stemming from biblical stories. The presentations will be accompanied by distribution of materials that paraphrase Bible stories about reconciliation. Camp leaders and family heads will also be presented with the Arabic Peace & Justice Bible.
We hope to reach 15,000 children through this creative entertainment program! Will you support us?
