The FMSI promoted the collection of humanitarian aid for the Fratelli Project

19/02/2019: General House

During the month of January 2019, the FMSI promoted among the lay employees of the General House, the collection of humanitarian aid for the "Fratelli" Educational Center of Rmeileh (Lebanon). The donation was sent on January 31, thanks to the logistical collaboration of the Italian Army of the UNIFIL Command, that coordinated the expedition through the "Garibaldi" Bersaglieri Brigade present in Lebanon.

The shipment with a total of 200 kilos contained clothing, school supplies, food, and toys.

The Rmeileh Center is a joint work of the "Fratelli Project", directed by the Marist congregation and the Lasallian congregation, which offers basic school program to children and adolescents from 3 to 16 years old.

The Fratelli project was created in 2016 in Lebanon by the congregations of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and the Marist Brothers as a response to the urgent, emerging needs of the most vulnerable children and young people. It assists mainly Syrian and Iraqi children displaced by the wars in the Middle East.
