Our 2015 Annual Appeal raised £34,000 for the exciting project getting underway in Lebanon. Already underway in two state schools the pilot project will not only transform the immediate prospects of many children with learning differences but - we believe - will help change the cultural context for the wider community of children with mental and physical challenges. John Earwicker said: "We are so grateful to the two sponsors who guaranteed to match our supporters donations. This has drawn a huge response from MAI friends that has surpassed any previous Appeal. Thank you so much. Nabil Costa, the founder of the SKILD ministry (Special Kids with Individual Learning Differences), and his wife had adopted a child who developed learning difficulties.
