Chabrouh Camps for the Disabled

Chabrouh Camps for the Disabled

The Chabrouh camps for the disabled are a unique and wonderful experience, where people get the chance to love beyond differences and enjoy camps full of activities and fun for everyone.

Each year, volunteers from the Youth of the Order of Malta in Lebanon get together with the youth of other delegations from Germany, England, Holland, France, and Switzerland to bring joy, love and happiness to physically and mentally challenged individuals (our "guests") coming from specialized homes and psychiatric hospitals across Lebanon. During 15 camps of one week each, located in the Al Fadi Center - Chabrouh, our underprivileged "guests" receive, from dedicated volunteers, the one-on-one attention they lack all year long in an environment where they can benefit from sunlight, fresh air, outdoor walks, and the beautiful landscape that the Lebanese mountains have to offer.

The first day of the camp, each volunteer is assigned a "guest" that he/she will be responsible of during the entire duration of the camp (one week). This one-on-one relationship is the basic foundation behind this project: during the one-week holiday camp, the "guest" receives all the attention and devoted love of one person, at any time of the day - a luxury whish he/she is deprived of all year long.
Summer camps continue until mid-September and more volunteers are needed!

Join us and register to one or more camps mentioned below and get a chance to live a wonderful experience with our guests and volunteers.
