Children’s summer camp!

By Dan Etheridge

Of the approximately 1.5 million Syrian refugees in Lebanon, at least half are children. Having been exposed to the atrocities of war and displacement, these children are greatly in need of Christ’s love and healing. Now more than ever there is a battle for the hearts and minds of this generation, that their dark past and troubling present will not be the defining factor in their future.

Lebanon Children’s Camps

Type: Children’s camp provision
Cost: Estimated £1700 (includes £800 donation to fund the Children’s camp)*
Deposit: £200, paid by 30 November, 2016 (non-refundable)

Open Doors Partner in Lebanon, LSESD, working together with local partner churches, organises childrens’ camps throughout the year in response to the grave needs in their community. No matter what the child’s background – whether Muslim or Christian, rich or poor, they try to show them how special they are and how great the love of God is for them. Each day starts with singing Christian songs and choruses, followed by storytelling from the Bible, dancing, crafts and games. A wholesome lunch is served as well as morning and afternoon snacks. The aim of each day is to show God’s love through the activities while having fun.

The camp is from 22-24 June. From 25-27 June you will spend time in Beirut visiting pertinent sites and learning more about the country.

*Through your funding you will be able to provide 3 days of ministry to about 100 Syrian refugee children.
