From May 23 to June 2, 2024, a team from Ma’an lil-Hayat consisting of Rania, Razan and Saher traveled to France to take part in the 60th anniversary of the founding of L’Arche communities in France. Prior to the celebration, which took place in Brittany, the group was warmly welcomed and hosted at L’Arche Community in Strasbourg for a few days. During their stay in France, the group was able to feel the love and solidarity of the French people with the Palestinian people. 

Ma’an lil-Hayat would like to thank L’Arche International for giving us the opportunity to travel to France, participate in the celebration and represent Ma’an lil-Hayat and Palestine. A special thank you is also extended to the Community leader of L’Arche Strasbourg Mr. Tobias Gerken and his wonderful team for everything that they did for us during our stay in France. We were also happy to meet our longtime friend Widad Bisher who welcomed us in her home in Trosly-Breuil.
