BCYM has launched the Camp in a Box in order to minister to vulnerable children during these troubling times. The Camp in a Box is geared towards ages 6 to 10 and contains 15 days worth of activities such as spiritual and educational worksheets, crafts, books and materials to fill children at home with love and hope in God’s word. Additionally, BCYM is distributing 11 to 15 year-old bags, which include a devotional and sweet gifts to brighten up their day. Moreover, as a way to help cater to the psychological needs of these children that may have resulted from the explosion, SKILD has teamed up with BCYM by adding their Wise Parenting book to the boxes along with booklets and psychological assessment questionnaires to the bags for teenagers. BCYM looks forward to producing these boxes year round and distributing them to as many children as possible across Lebanon (Lebanese and Refugee).
