St Luke’s Rehabilitation Centre in Lebanon - Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem
St Luke’s rehabilitation centre, run by the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, is well recognised within Lebanon for serving the intellectually challenged children of the community. It runs a vocational workshop and training program that incorporates a variety of activities that support underprivileged youth and children with disability.
One activity is food manufacturing. Young people in the centre take great pride in producing tasty pastries, sweets and chocolates to sell in Lebanon and in neighbouring countries like Jordan.
However, the centre is now in need of a reliable machine that will allow young people to continue being trained in chocolate making.
By supporting this project, your donation will help the centre purchase a new machine and give disadvantaged students the opportunity to carry on with their work, becoming active contributors to their community.
ABM’s Encounter Program
ABM’s Encounter Program aims to facilitate two-way learning between a visitor from an overseas partner Anglican Church and the Australian church communities they visit.
One of the best ways of learning about Anglicans from overseas is by meeting them in person. ABM’s Encounter Program is a way in which Australian Anglicans can do just that. It’s designed to provide two-way learning and understanding by allowing specially-chosen people from among ABM’s Overseas Partners to come to Australia. While they are here, they can work on their own learning goals and, at the same time, can help Australian Anglicans to learn what it’s like to be an Anglican somewhere else in the world. Please support this program so that learning opportunities can be afforded to others just like Nant Hnin Hnin (Snow) Aye from the Church of the Province of Myanmar.
