Demographically and economically, Tripoli is the second largest city in Lebanon. The location of several clashes during the civil war, the city is struggling to rebuild itself and to get rid of its bloody past. In this context, the volunteers of SOS Chrétien d'Orient, in partnership with the Greek Catholic Bishop of Tripoli, Monsignor Daher, and Father Basilius, the future manager, decided to launch an ambitious project to meet this challenge.
This project is to finance the creation of a sewing workshop for the Christians of Tripoli. Eventually, the much broader ambition, would be on the one hand to create employment for seamstresses in the city and its surroundings, and on the other hand to revitalize the economic life of the second largest city of Lebanon .
