Woman-to-Woman Worldwide 2015 – Middle East

On Tuesday, September 29, 2015, the Woman-to-Woman Worldwide delegation landed in Beirut, Lebanon. The journey has begun.DW-WWW-2015-RabbitWarrenAlleyway

Thursday, October 1, 2015, “All of a sudden we took a sharp left off of the street down a narrow alleyway. We were in Shatilla camp. Sylvia and a woman from the school led us through a rabbit warren of alleyways that turned left then right; sometimes getting so narrow that only one person at a time could walk. Above us were electrical lines that string from one building to another and then up several floors. Sometimes the electrical lines were so thick you could hardly see the sky. When there was space between the buildings, people hung their wash even though there was hardly a breath of a breeze to dry them. Walking through the alleys with little light, I could not see the raised cement or the holes and wondered about the water and wetness. Sometimes there was a stench.” Sue Delap, Tuscon, Arizona.

Thus began the miraculous journey that lasted until the return flight home on Friday, October 9.
