A Day of Fun by the River for Shatila Children!


Last Friday, about 75 refugee children from Shatila, accompanied by CYC staff and several youth volunteers, went on a field-trip to a river in the town of Damour, about 20 kilometers south of Shatila.


The outing’s activities included picnicking, football matches, singing and dancing, and of course lots of splashing and playing in the water.


The field-trip served an important purpose, affording Syrian and Palestinian refugee children a needed release from the oppressions of camp-life—a fulfilling day of recreation in a natural setting far removed from the streets of Shatila.


Everyone enjoyed the chance to spend the hot day swimming in and relaxing by the water, children and staff alike!
