Two congregations launch documentary on refugee project in Lebanon
The Marist Brothers and the De La Salle Brothers have officially launched “The Fratelli Project” documentary explaining how they are helping refugee children in Lebanon.
The video, released on September 29th, includes an interview with the head of the Catholic Maronite Church, Patriarch Bechara Boutros Rai, who praises their work and presence in the country.
It also includes testimonies of the two Superiors General, Brothers Emili Turú (FMS) and Robert Schieler (FSC) as well as the two leaders of the project themselves –Brothers Miquel Cubeles (FMS) and Andrés Porras Gutiérrez (FSC).
This inter-congregational project hopes to extend its work outside the Middle East to other places where children and young people suffer from conflict.
It is an open invitation to other congregations who also wish to collaborate.
