Nowadays, people can spend a lot of money on their own outings and their children’s. However, deprived families can’t even afford to go to the beach, visit a cultural site, or simply take a trip to the mountains, therefore, Bassma Foundation decided to take several disadvantaged families encompassing 250 beneficiaries in an outing to La Sagesse public garden to spend a beautiful day together, to have lunch, play and build beautiful memories, while feeling the family spirit.
Commenting on the occasion, the President and Founder of Bassma, Mrs. Sandra Klat Abdelnour stated that: “Deprived families are battling daily to meet the basic needs necessary for their survival. They tend to forget the simple pleasures of life. Therefore, Bassma Foundation organizes regular cultural activities and outings that allow families to leave their troubles aside and relax for an entire memorable day. Today, I would like to thank the municipality of Jdeideh for giving us this opportunity and Grand Hills Hotel for the initiative, the food, and the super dynamic team who volunteered and animated this beautiful activity.”
Since youths are the future of Lebanon, and are the first to suffer when a family faces financial or social tensions, Bassma Foundation takes care of their well-being and their families’ since 2002, and has developed a specialized program for them, which aims to foster the intellectual and creative growth of the youths. Once again, Bassma Foundation is drawing a smile and ensuring the basic pleasures that can change people’s lives, even for few hours.
