9 Year Old Killed After Being Sexually Abused by a 15 Year Old

In a report aired on Al Jadeed TV News on July 4, 9 year old Mahmoud was killed by a 15 year old who attempted to sexually abuse him. When Mahmoud threatened to tell his father, he was brutally killed by the teenager who then confessed his crime to the authorities.

Mahmoud had been missing from the night before. Authorities were only able to find his body the next morning.

The abuser this time is a child himself. He is a 15 year old who is living alone, without his mother or father.

Mahmoud is another victim of our society’s closed-mindedness. The only way for such atrocities to no longer see the light is for us to speak up. Awareness is essential to build a healthy society based on good values.

We comment Al Jadeed TV for shedding light on this story, in the hopes of it being the last one of its kind.

May Mahmoud rest in eternal peace.

Bikaffe Successfully Hosts Bébé Maryam Play for 300 Children on Odeon Theater

Beirut – May 24, 2015:

Bikaffe successfully hosted “Bébé Maryam” Play on “Le Théatre de Gisèle”, Odeon – Jal El Dib for nearly 300 children, where the NGO presented to Mrs. Gisèle Hachem Zard a token of appreciation for all her selfless support. Other figures were also honored during the event.

“I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who contributed to make this event a successful one, especially Mrs. Gisèle Hachem Zard who went above and beyond to help draw a smile on the faces of 300 children. Without her support, this event wouldn’t have been as successful as it is”, said Mr. André Andraos, President of BIKAFFE.

Mrs. Zard took the stage to accept the token of appreciation presented to her by BIKAFFE, and she had a few words to share with the audience: “I am here today to be the voice of children who have no voice, just like in the picture. Let us all raise our hands and say “Enough” (BIKAFFE), and raise our voice against abuse. You should tell your mom and dad, and not be afraid to speak up!”

Nearly 300 children enjoyed watching the fun play after listening to an awareness speech regarding hygiene and reporting abuse. After the play, gifts were distributed to all the attending children who left with a big smile on their faces.

We would like to thank Mrs. Gisèle Hachem Zard once again for all her efforts and support.
