Syrian Brother: Priority of Blue Marists now is to offer a solid formation



Video interview with Br Georges Sabe

07/12/2017: Syria

In a video interview with Brother Georges Sabe on Nov. 23, he underscored that now that the situation is improving in the country the priority of the Blue Marists in Aleppo, Syria, is to offer a solid formation.

“We help (families) with the rent, we offer them milk and food, butwe are increasingly focusing more on their personal development and formation,” he said during his visit to the general house in Rome.

The Blue Marists in Aleppo include two Brothers and around 80 lay volunteers. Since July 2012, they have helped over 1,000 Muslim and Christian families.

“The most important part of our mission today is to help people develop, to educate those who have lost everything and offer them work opportunities,” affirmed Br Georges. “We also provide a close presence to young adolescents; we provide listening and a relationship with each family member.”
