Carol-singing for Lebanon

A moving sign of solidarity towards this country in its current heavy economic and political turmoil has been given by youth from Lichtensteig (SG). As tradition wants, children dressed up as the Magi go from house to house singing carols. Giordano Barth who recently visited multiconfessional and yet tolerant Lebanon accompanied the children on their tour and provided first-hand testimony. The handsome amount of collected 2’500 Fr. will be transferred to Solidarity Lebanon-Switzerland.

Peace message from Lebanon 2020

FOYER DE LA LUMIERE / SOLIDARITY LEBANON SWITZERLAND (SLS)

In the 15th year of the partnership between the Foyer de la Lumière and Solidarity Lebanon-Switzerland, we are pleased that, despite great difficulties, we were able to continue our task faithfully. SLS is dedicated to providing educational scholarships to young people in need of education and knowledge, and Foyer de la Lumière takes care of education and reintegration programs for the young people who have been perpetrators and victims of delinquency. It is as it were the two wings of the dove which symbolize the commitment to peace. The dove of peace can also be found in the logo of the joint mission of SLS and Foyer de la Lumière in Lebanon.

So the two peace patrons moved in together to another church in Switzerland.
