German Embassy Support to JLSS

Her Excellency Ms. Birgitta Siefker-Eberle, German Ambassador in Beirut, kindlyNew Washing Machine included JLSS in the German Development Aid Program this year. We applied for two badly needed pieces of equipment which are very expensive and we cannot afford. Our laundry department is badly in need of a heavy duty industrial washing machine which costs around US$ 8,000, and our kitchen equally needs a second 100 liter tilting cooking pot which costs around US$ 10,000.
Our application was approved, and the director, Rev. George D. Haddad, along with board member, Mr. Jean Dagher, went to the German Embassy in Mteileb on Wednesday 14 November 2012, to sign the grant agreement with her excellency Ms. Birgitta Siefker-Eberle.
As the local supplier cannot deliver the cooking pot before the end of December 2012, it was imperative in accordance with the German Development Program regulations to move this part of the project to next year.
The washing machine was delivered on 5 December 2012.
We thank Her Excellency Ms. Birgitta Siefker-Eberle for her wonderful friendship and support of our school. We are very grateful to her, the German people, and the German government for both grants which will provide us with badly needed equipment, and for the wonderful support we receive from Germany which is the backbone of the JLSS mission and programs.
Vielen Dank!
