Medical Program

Our Program

The Medical Assistance Program has been serving chronically ill patients in Lebanon since 1988, through a network of 451 dispensaries. The program aims to provide those in need with 63 different medications free of charge through local health care facilities distributed all over the country.  Around 150,000 Lebanese citizens, and around 15,000 Syrian refugees are currently beneficiaries of the program.  Our beneficiaries also recieve access to full medical services provided by physicians, nurses, and health workers through these facilities.


The medical assistance program includes training, awareness sessions, and prevention programs on health related topics such as the rational use of medicine, stock management, substance abuse, communicable, and non-communicable diseases.  The program is mainly funded by the Ministry of Public Health, and in recent years it received financial support from several organizations such as WHO and UNHCR in part to expand coverage to Syrian refugees.  We also regularly receive in-kind donations through a partnership with Anera.
