World Wood Day regional event in Lebanon

Theme: World Wood Day 2015 Wood & Humanity

Venue: Tall Abbas Al Gharbi Refugee Camp

Date: 9 March to 15 March, 2015

The event was aimed to help Syrian children receive much-needed education. A wooden classroom was built in seven days at the Tall Abbas Al Gharbi Refugee Camp, situated at the border of Lebanon and Syria, as part of the World Wood Day regional event. Volunteers gave classes on the importance of wood and assisted the children in making classroom equipment, such as desks, chairs, a board, baskets, etc. A tree planting activity was also arranged to spread the message of sustainable development. All the volunteers who participated in the project were deeply moved and touched by what the classroom could do and mean to the children.
