New Vision Media Center at Bethlehem Bible College hosted an event for people with disabilities
New Vision Media Center at Bethlehem Bible College hosted an event in cooperation with four institutions from the Bethlehem governorate that support people with disabilities ranging from mental to physical and visual disabilities. The four institutions are “Al-Malath” Charitable Society, Oasis Center, L’ARCHE (Ma’an lil- hayat) and House of Hope.
About 100 participants enjoyed watching the play Toy Store produced by the Inad Theater, where the play was characterized by its interactive nature. This production touched the audience’s heart and awakened the feeling of joy. The show sent them into a beautiful world where they were dancing full of innocence and vitality.
Dr. Bishara Awad, founder of Bethlehem Bible College, started the events by talking about the social and moral responsibility that should be given in order to take good care of persons with disabilities. He also thanked the Media Department for their generous gesture and expressed his happiness to meet with his guests. Further, he encouraged civil society to continue their progress in the field of humanitarian services.
In his turn, Mr. Khaled Al-Masu, director of Inad Theater, thanked Dr. Bishara Awad for this hospitality and recalled memories from many years ago of Dr. Bishara’s words. He spoke about the dream that Dr. Bishara had, which started with a small idea that grew to become living proof of provision in our society.
It is worth mentioning that Mr. Khaled Al-Masu has distinguished his commitment to the issues of his community and presented many works of art that carry strong messages capable of bringing positive change in the lives of children, youth and persons with disabilities. This play was part of the creativity of the theater team, which served as an interactive as well as educational message for children including topics such as conviction, cleanliness, environment, sports and proper nutrition.
At the end of the ceremony, the team presented gifts to all the children, and, in turn, symbolic gifts were shared with the partner institutions.
