Belgian Deputy Prime Minister, Culture and Education Minister Alda Grioli, toured Sunday the Amel Association branches in southern Lebanon, namely in the areas of Khiam and Ebel Al-Saki, accompanied by Belgium's Ambassador to Lebanon, Hubert Cooreman.
The visit was a chance to have a closer look at the Association's humanitarian work with the Syrian refugees and local community members.
Grioli expressed her admiration for the Association's achievements so far, especially in terms of veering away from the sectarian and factional aspects suffered by the Arab world, its relentless efforts in popular areas and its continued humanitarian support for the displaced.
The Belgian official described the Association as being "a model for change in the world, where man is both the target and the engine."
