Lebanese Red Cross commemorating Michael Jubeili
The Lebanese Red Cross in Zahle revived the anniversary of the martyr Michael Jubeili, who passed away in the area of Kefraya (West Bekaa), while he was performing his duty in securing humanitarian aid convoy for displaced people from Marjayoun during the war on Lebanon in July 2006.
For the record, a Mass was held in the church of Sayydit Zahle where Father Elias Jomhouri said: On the fourth anniversary of the martyrdom of Michael Jubeili we meet with you in this painful occasion to salute our martyrs who have passed away leaving us a lesson about self-tender not in words but in practice... We remember the martyrs of the Lebanese Red Cross who raised the highest values in the humanitarian forums, leaving us lessons in not being confined to the self and rejecting of the barriers with any person in need.
After the Mass a candlelight walk began around the center which bore the name of Michael Jubeili where a monument to the martyrs of the Lebanese Red Cross was unveiled. The monument is composed of two red lighted crosses with a flame above that was lighted by Michael’s friends.
The President of Zahle Center Mr. Joseph Daoud in his word, saluted the Martyrs of the Lebanese Red Cross, who numbered 15 martyrs confederate to keep their memory in the hearts and minds because they are role models and the message and the ultimate sacrifice for the great humanitarian work, declaring the publishing of a website holding Michael’s name.
At the end was the screening of a documentary about the tasks performed by the EMS teams in Zahle followed by handing the plaques of the fourth anniversary of the martyrdom of Michael to the mayor and the Jubeili family and the EMS director Mr. George Kettani.
