This incredible organization has is in the process of moving to a better building in order to provide for the students and children with special needs that it serves. It currently lacks a kitchen to provide food for its students, especially for those with dietary restrictions. The kitchen is vital to the new space.
The $22,730 will allow for extensive repairs and weatherproofing throughout the school to reduce the humidity that jeopardizes the health of its students, keep them warm in winter and improve their studying environment.
Currently there is not a science laboratory in the school. All chemistry, physics and biology experiments are limited to few materials. $14,000 will allow the Antonine Sisters School to construct a laboratory and equip it.
The Providence Home includes an orphanage, a dispensary, carpentry, steel and aluminum workshops, a technical school and a special school, as well as providing medical aid to over 350 patients a month. It is imperative to construct a retaining wall to reinforce and prevent further damage to key structures suffering from major cracks and possible collapse.
We are raising funds to help keep the 150 students of the school safe, including installing a water filtration system to provide potable water, security bars on windows, and a covered walkway between buildings.
We are raising funds to rehabilitate the indoor and external stairs of this school in the far south of Lebanon. Extensive repairs were needed after damage from shelling in 2000, but most pressing are the staircases, which are causing water leaks in the rooms.
