The entrance to the Garden of the Righteous

The entrance to the Garden of the Righteous

Saturday, June 29 in the village of Kfarnabrakh, 45 km from Beirut, the first Garden of the Righteous in Lebanon was inaugurated with the dedication of olive trees in honour of ten Righteous belonging to different ethnic groups, religions and beliefs.

The initiative stems from the common will of Gariwo and the Lebanese association Annas Linnas to pursue the common good and solidarity, and took place within the Sensorial Educational Garden located on the hill of Kfarnabrakh. 

The association Annas Linnas, established in 2009 by the Greek-Melchite-Basiliense father Abdo Raad to promote coexistence between local population and refugees, has been committed since 2011 to alleviating the inconveniences caused by the arrival of new refugees from the neighboring countries. Among its activities there is precisely the Sensorial Educational Garden, designed as an open space for individual prayer and collective discussion in contact with nature.

Don’t miss the story of the Righteous and the memory of Good
