A little Christian enclave in the North-East of the Bekaa plain, the Lebanese village of Jabboulé counts three hundred inhabitants and is located in a semi-arid, rural and agricultural region where cultivatable lands are not irrigated enough to be properly exploited.
SOS Chrétiens d’Orient is committed to financing the drilling of a 30-meter-deep well, providing irrigation systems sufficient to water the Christian agricultural lands of Jabboulé. Affected by a disastrous economic situation, the young people of the village are struggling to find work and to feed their families and the elders of this region are sadly well known for this news.
The neighbouring Greek-Catholic Village of Al Qaa has recently been affected by a series of suicide attacks. The future of all these young people is uncertain in these localities which are more and more abandoned over the years.
Here, over 300 Christian families have already left their land.
