Project visit report 1.10.2015 by Sirkku Kivistö

The visit was fruitful and we thank BAS for organising the program and contacts. We were delighted to meet all the Sabra and Shatila Commemoration week guests, long-term partners.

The Finnish supporters sent useful items with us, like knitwear, hiking shoes, dental treatment tools, children´s drawing materials. Some cash money was also sent and delivered in the financial department (for knitting group in Baalbeck and from Global Social Work/Finland for social work in Shatila). The sponsored children and Elderly people got letters and small gifts from their sponsors.
