MECC attended FELM International Consultation Workshop

The Middle East Council of Churches represented by its director of “Diakonia” department Mr. Samer Laham attended the International consultation workshop from May 15 to 19, 2019, at the invitation of Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Mission “FELM” which celebrates the 160th anniversary of its founding.

The main objective of the workshop was to review the FELM strategic plan from 2017 to 2022 with 26 partners from different countries. The program was based on interactive workshops that divided participants by continents, regions and topics.

In this context, MECC shared its mission and vision as well as it values through open plenary discussions. Its participation was very effective and positive in all the working groups and opened the door to strengthen the relationship with FELM in the future.

In turn, FELM expressed its high appreciation of its partnership with MECC which began two years ago, and emphasized on the common values and objectives that should be invested more in the future.
