Papal Mission opens a Co-op soap factory

The Pontifical Mission for Palestine has opened a co-operative soap factory at St, Joseph's ('amp. near Beirut.

The refugees recently built a chapel, school and clinic and improved the sanitary and water conditions.

Second-hand equipment has been installed and the workers will take turns working in the factory they built. All profits will be divided equally by the refugees.

For the past four months, sewing projects have provided clothing. Refugee schools have been started with refugee teachers.

Through benefactors in the United States, it has been possible to build two churches and five schools.
