ADFA’s incredible volunteers and Board -- in co-operation with the Lebanese NGO, Village of Peace and Love -- have created a sanctuary for 30 children in just a couple of months.
ADFA came to the rescue of an orphanage in Lebanon which was in danger of closing due to lack of funds, sending 30 vulnerable children into the mean streets of Beirut. We raised funds, found and paid for a beautiful new home for them complete with furnishings, and a yard and space for them to play. We made arrangements for school and kindergarten, and gave a new lease of life to the orphanage.
Having re-built the institution, which we re-named Safe Haven Lebanon, on a firm foundation, we handed it back to its original management, the Lebanese NGO, Village of Peace and Love.
