2021-04-21

The Honorary Consulate General of the State of Nepal in Lebanon honored Caritas Lebanon through a visit of a delegation headed by the Honorary Consul General Sheikh Muhammad Wissam Ghazel, accompanied by the lawyer of the Consulate, Mr. Rene Al-Qabaiti, and the Public Relations Officer, Mr. Mohieldin Hamza, where a shield of appreciation was presented to the President of the Association, Father Michel Abboud, in the presence of Both Program Manager Charbel Zeidan and Head of Foreigners Department Ms. Hassan Sayah at Caritas Lebanon.

The symbolism of the honor came within the framework of appreciating the efforts and work of Caritas in supporting and accommodating foreign workers in Lebanon and as an expression of full confidence in the association's professional work in defense of their rights.

In turn, Father Michel Abboud expressed his thanks for this honor and stressed the mutual trust. He also praised the efforts of the Caritas team, saying:

“Caritas Lebanon is keen to preserve human dignity and help everyone who turns to it for the purpose of doing charitable deeds and in order to support every human on Lebanese territory. We repeat a verse from the Bible that says, “I was a stranger, so they took me in,” to stress that humanitarian work does not differentiate according to religion, nationality, sect, or Belief, the sun shines on everyone.. these workers feel lonely when facing difficulties, far from their people and their families and outside their country, they lose support and refuge, so they resort to Caritas Lebanon looking for a space of hope.. The cases we face, so we thank everyone who cooperates with us for the sake of humanity.”

As for the Honorary Consul General, Sheikh Muhammad Wissam Ghazil, he hastened to say:

This honor from the consulate came late because what Caritas has been doing for decades in sheltering female workers is a great job, especially today after the dollar crisis, so that they are thrown in front of the doors of embassies and consulates on the one hand, or they receive a wage in Lebanese pounds on the other hand, which prevents them from transferring abroad.

The meeting was also concluded by the head of the foreigners department at Caritas Lebanon, Mrs. Hassan Sayah, by saying:

Caritas also intervenes practically and professionally with justice in a neighborhood in order to resolve disputes between workers and employers, as it appoints lawyers to investigate the rights of the infringing party, appoints people to work to facilitate public security transactions and procedures, and provides protection through shelters and listening and many activities The most important of them are awareness and training courses, and the main problems in this field are still exacerbating against female workers in Lebanon to this day.”
