A priest asks TentED to sponsor a trip to a local cinema for Christian children.
Word got out about our first field trip to the movies. Father Daniel, the educational programs coordinator at Mar Elia Church — home to 130 displaced Christian families — reached out to TentED to ask if we could take displaced children living on the grounds of his church to the movies, too. Of course!
Always eager to show support for the range of religious and ethnic communities represented in the area, TentED jumped at the chance to help.
A few days later, a group of about 100 children got to leave their camp community for the afternoon and take in the movie “The Avengers” in 3D. The accompanying photographs speak for themselves.
