our work is not limited to san diego…

In 2016, I facilitated the First Aid Arts program with Syrian refugee youth in Lebanon, the small country to which more than 1.5 million Syrian refugees have fled, adding monumental problems to their already limited resources. (To learn more about my first trip, please visit First Aid Arts.)

I went again in 2018 with ministry partners to work with youth leaders in Beirut and the Bekaa Valley. I met some amazing young ladies on that trip who were working long hours in the fields to support their families for $35 a week. Now, thanks to a partner organization they have the ability to work in a loving environment and create beautiful hand made products instead. We are doing what we can to help them.

I love Lebanon and it’s the home of my friends and partners . . . even the ones I work with in the United States.
