BICE: Seventy years of commitment with children



Anniversary of the Catholic International Bureau of Children

28/06/2018: France

As part of the 70th anniversary of the Catholic International Bureau of Children BICE, on June 18 in the Collège des Bernardins of Paris there was the release of the Book “Toward the implementation of the Resilience” - “Hacia la Implementación de la Resiliencia”.   On this occasion the educator Rana El Khoury of the Project Fratelli was invited to present this program developed by the Marists of Champagnat and the La Salle Brothers of Lebanon.  This program is destined for the school and psycho-educational attention of hundreds of Syrian and Iraqi refugee children.  

FMSI is an active member and part of the Board of Administration of the network formed by BICE.  Following a call of Pope Pius XII, BICE was founded in 1948 to take care of the victims of the Second World War.  At present it is a network of 80 Organizations distributed in four continents and is dedicated to the promotion of the dignity, the rights and the resilience of children.   

The links between FMSI and BICE began to become consolidated in Latin America through the formation of national networks in Chile, Argentina, and Brazil, as well as in Geneva through the different initiatives with the United Nations.  

With the funds collected in the Christmas Champaign that BICE carries out in France, in 2017 courses of formation on masters of resilience were supported in Marist projects of Granada and Lebanon.   In 2018, the formation in Syria will be supported (Blue Marists of Aleppo) and Haiti (Dame Marie).
