Rui Marques visits CLIB
On October the 20th, Dr. Rui Marques, President of the Platform Support for Refugees in Portugal, visited CLIB as a partner institution and a PAR hostess.
He had the opportunity to talk to the students about his personal experience over many years with refugee populations and to witness the enthusiasm and involvement of our students in hosting the Syrian family who CLIB received last May in Braga. Dr. Rui Marques highlighted the uniqueness of the host institution, as a school, a factor that weighed heavily in success of the integration of the Syrian family, who felt at all times a huge affection and care from the people who welcomed them. He congratulated the students for their excellent work and commitment to the project which is undoubtedly one of the best and most successful examples of the integration of refugees in Portugal. The family was welcomed by CLIB’s community at the end of May and our students prepared their arrival throughout the school year. From the preparation of the house that was destined for the family, to raising the necessary goods (Furniture, clothes, etc), the students worked over the months to ensure that nothing would be missing for the Hanan family. Daily at CLIB, the students are involved in their welfare. They taught them Portuguese and established bonds and a very close proximity with the family. The three older children of the Hanan family are daily companions of our students in the classroom and during break times at CLIB and colleagues often visit them out of the school. At the end of the assembly, the words of Rui Marques were of pride and encouragement: "It is a unique and very special experience, this one you’re living, you will remember it for life, do not be discouraged ever and thank you for your extraordinary example."
