Refugees in Lebanon

 

Lebanon’s COVID-19 numbers are increasing insanely. We had a lockdown again for two weeks, but with some exceptions.

They always enjoy coming, learning, having fun, and doing more activities regardless of the situation we are all going through.

Refugees in Lebanon

 

Maya* is one of our sewing course graduates. She is a Syrian refugee from Homs. She lost her parents in Syria during the war, and her brother lost his two legs fighting with the Syrian army.
