"Spring of Life" Center for Children At Risk
The "Spring of Life" center was founded in the Nabaa area to shelter, educate, feed, and minister to poor, abandoned, or abused children.
Goals and vision
We believe that working with the Nabaa children is extremely important mainly because most of them are unable to attend school. They are at risk of becoming delinquents and therefore outcasts, if not a danger to the society.
The "Spring of Life" center aims to:
We have been involved in ministry work in Nabaa for over 10 years now to cater for the pressing needs detected in that region. We have visited children’s homes and made summer camps for them. Finally in 2006, by God's help and through our friends, we managed to rent two apartments that became the “Spring of Life” center. It took us a lot of prayers and labor to renovate and refurbish the center to receive sixty children.
About the children
Our center hosts more than fifty students aged between 5 and 15, of various nationalities: Lebanese, Egyptian, Sudanese, Iraqis, Kurds, Syrians, Armenians and others. They are of different religious and cultural backgrounds. Most of them live in very poor houses and come from dysfunctional families. So, often, there is no one to teach them how to read or write. Furthermore, some have to work to make a living.
Spring of Life center has 2 remedial programs for children, a morning shift and an afternoon shift, in addition the center provides medical and rescue programs for families and adults.
Nabaa is one of the poorest areas in Beirut. It is full of children at risk of homelessness. But the Lord founded this center and His hand is working through us in many children’s lives. Therefore, we would like to continue what we started years ago and develop it by the grace of God.
Thank you for your cooperation and personal, moral, spiritual and financial support.
