As some of you may already know, I am volunteering since 2007 in Faith and Light . An association that works for people with mental handicap. The association assembles volunteers of all ages, people with mental handicap and their parents, sisters, brothers, in what we call communities.
The communities are divided according to the geographical regions ( to help the group to meet in a near place to all). The activities are many, their aim is to recognise the other person, with mental disorder as a Person, as a Human Being, with full rights . the right to live in dignity, the right to live in the society, the right to have friends….
Do not hesitate to visit the entire trilingual Page I publish and update about faith and light activities in Lebanon!
I took the rest of the msg from richard event on Facebook. ” At the heart of these communities are people with a more or less serious intellectual disability: children, adolescent or adults.
Foi et Lumiere gives to persons with an intellectual disability the possibility of recognizing and using their gifts and discovering the joy of friendship. To the parents, Foi et Lumiere gives s…upport in their trials and helps them to better appreciate the inner beauty of their children. A number of them, in turn, become a source of strength and assistance to other parents who are crushed by their suffering and their daily difficulties.
It was thanks to persons with an intellectual disability, I also came to understand that there is another world, a world other than that of competition, money and material pleasures; those who are week and poor invited me into a world of tenderness and fidelity, of listening and of faith. There I understood the real meaning of Love.
In return, I am inviting you on April 9 at 19:30 to join the famous Abir Nehmeh for a recital in St Elias Church in Antelias. This event will help raise money for Foi et Lumiere and help it organize its activities. There are invitations for 20,000LL, 30,000LL and 50,000LL. If you want to do something noble this blessed season, why don’t you go listen to Abir’s Angelic voice.
Thank you for your consideration. Foi et Lumiere couldn’t do it without
the generosity of donors like yourself.
