Assameh Birth & Beyond - Lebanon

Humanitarian and Civic Services - 2022

“ASSAMEH – Birth & Beyond” is a non-profit organization specializing in the rehabilitation of pediatric wards in governmental hospitals across Lebanon. The mission of ASSAMEH is to ensure that deprived Lebanese children receive first-class medical care, regardless of their social and demographic situations. Since its inception in 2016, the facility has been able to treat over 7500 patients at the premises, with an additional 25,000 patients receiving external consultations. Over the past few years, ASSAMEH has faced many challenges, but with the support of the dedicated team of volunteers and the generous support of donors, the organization was able to maintain an exceptional level of medical care despite the economic and social crisis the country is facing. In the wake of the devastating explosion in the port of Beirut, “ASSAMEH – Birth & Beyond” managed to completely rebuild and equip the children’s Ward. The organization was able to face the dire economic and financial crisis that struck Lebanon by launching the “Patient Fund” program to support patients who are unable to pay even the minimum fees, as well as support nurses, doctors and staff at the Beirut government hospital - Karentina. In terms of expansions, “ASSAMEH- Birth and Beyond” signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Health to rehabilitate and equip the unfinished 80 bed hospital facility, the “Mother and Child Hospital”, adjacent to the existing pediatric ward.  In addition, a Pediatric Dialysis center will be created at the Quarantina Hospital, to provide children and babies, not only with treatment but ensure a special environment with special medical, physical, and psychological support.
