Siviglia (Agenzia Fides) - Help us to help, is the motto of a trade market organized by the Andalusian Palestino Association for Children, intended to raise funds for eye and ear surgeries regarding children living in refugee camps in Lebanon. The market consists of sixty sweet, ceramic and craft stands, among others. "We bring sick children to operate them in Spain and we support all medical, administrative, transportation expenses, including lodging, meals for the children and mothers until after the surgery", says a statement released by the president of the Association. The initiative also proposes the construction of a center for blind children in the village of Burj el Barajneh near Beirut. (AP) (Agenzia Fides 23/05/2016)
