AGBU Lebanon Dispensaries





History Logs

Project Description

Region: Middle East

Country: Lebanon

Location: Beirut

Total Budget: $100,000

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

Given the current dire economic situation of the country and the role medical dispensaries need to play to assist vulnerable communities, RC Beirut Cosmopolitan (RCBC), decided to undertake the project of assisting AGBU Dispensaries. There is a desperate need for more primary healthcare centers that offer minimal charge services in Lebanon.

To meet these needs, AGBU Lebanon decided to expand its dispensary in Dora (at the outskirts of Beirut) by adding more equipment. The service expansion will allow AGBU to serve hundreds of additional patients per year. AGBU Lebanon will use funding to expand existing medical care activities by purchasing additional medical equipment for a total budget of around $100,000.

RCBC, after visiting and checking the premises of the Dispensary, perceives a total of 6-8 months for the completion of the project, (six months from the time the funds are available); RCBC Club members have already started their thorough study, different sub-groups checking, reviewing and analyzing as follows: first checking the history of the organization/dispensary, verifying their professionality and reliability, confirming sustainability, evaluating and assessing the needs, and finally contacting & coordinating with our international friends/partners to realize the project.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
