10 laptops donated to Kleyaa Public School
UNIFIL’s Force Commander Reserve (FCR) inaugurated a French-funded project at a public school in Kleyaa, south-eastern Lebanon, last week.
The Civil-Military Cooperation (CIMIC) project included the donation of 10 laptops to Kleyaa Public School, replacing as many desktop computers. About 180 children studying in the School and hailing from 12 neighbouring villages are expected to benefit from the donation.
The 5 June ceremony at the School was attended by Lieutenant Colonel Vincent D., representing FCR Commander Colonel Loïc Girard, and other dignitaries including the local mayor and director of the School.
While working alongside host communities in south Lebanon for the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 1701, UNIFIL peacekeepers also provide various supports based on their needs. For example, FCR CIMIC executes about four school donation projects each year. They recently donated science equipment to another school within UNIFIL’s area of operation in south Lebanon.
