Help Syrian Refugee Children Attend School in Lebanon

Many Syrians have settled in the Bekaa Valley in eastern Lebanon. One of the most urgent tasks in the region is to provide schooling for as many children as possible. Otherwise, theirs could be a lost generation, without a future abroad or in their home country. Without education, problems will continue to worsen, not just for the children themselves but for society in general.

The Jesuits run three schools in the Bekaa Valley: two primary schools and one secondary school. There are 113 Syrian refugee children enrolled, and Father Marek Cieslik, the overall director of the schools, has asked that we help them. Can you help today?
