Children in Bekaa Valley welcome MERCY Malaysia!

First child-friendly space for the young ones brings normalcy in dire conditions

January 16, 2016, Bekaa Valley, Lebanon:

Every child deserves the right to play. But if you are a very young Syrian in a refugee camp in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley, life is anything but normal.
Especially when you cannot go to a regular school, mingle with children your own age and end up facing cold wintry nights with rationed heating.

Living within the confines of their camp walls, running in little alleys separating their ‘container’ homes, MERCY Malaysia stepped in recently and opened a much needed child-friendly space for the young ones in the Faida camp.

Designed to help children play in peace and privacy, learn new things, listen to stories and express themselves through games, this space will help them return to some form of normalcy. These creative diversions are helpful for their development as they cannot attend local schools.
Or interact with the population outside their camps.
Local volunteer teachers take turns to supervise the children, and children from nearby camps also make an effort to come.

MERCY Malaysia’s team arrived on Jan 13, its 4th mission to help the Syrian refugees, where temperatures fall to sub-zero at night.
They are now visiting five camps in Bekaa Valley helping almost 500 families with humanitarian assistance and much needed hope for the neglected children.

Consisting of Team Leader En Norazam Ab. Samah, assisted by Mohammad Said Alhudzari and Muhammad Abdullah Ishari, plus MERCY Malaysia’s embedded media team, this trip also includes distribution of essential food parcels, blankets, heaters, fuel, medicines and clinic supplies.

Visiting the heart of the Bekaa Valley, namely refugee camps in Farah (45 families), Auda (300 families), Abrar (65 families), Faidah (26 families) and Ewak (30 families), MERCY Malaysia is reaching out to over 2,500 displaced Syrians this time.

From a conflict now in its fifth year, over 1.2 million Syrian refugees are in Lebanon.

More than half of them are young children!
