Launch of Peace Iftars in Lebanon and beyond
We started into the holy month with a March into Ramadan with Syrian refugee kids in Halba (Lebanon), close to our first Peace Centre. Together with a local partner organisation, we had a cheerful walk, ending in the distribution of several hundreds of Iftar packs to poor families in need. In the coming weeks, we are organising Peace Iftars with Syrian refugees and with different communities in Lebanon: Sunni, Shiite, Catholic, Orthodox, Alawite and Druze. We wish to contribute a little bit to easing the tensions between Sunnis and Shiites that are currently devoring Syria, Lebanon and many other countries of the Middle East.
As Christians, Muslims, Jews or other believers, agnostics or atheists, we are joining the Greater Jihad as Islam has defined it over centuries: the inner struggle for righteousness, justice and peace. We chose for ourselves the principle of non-violent action, but we are not condemning those fighting to defend themselves. In the midst of the night, we are not losing hope for justice and peace, truth and forgiveness.
United, we will be stronger than any division, hatred and prejudice. United, we can make a difference, midst in the nightmares of humanity. Please join and support us in our struggle. Please make a donation here to support our cause!
