Amel Association International was founded in the midst of the Lebanese civil war (1975-1990) that destroyed the country and with it an entire nation. Amel, along with the support of people from different backgrounds in Lebanon, faced all odds within the Lebanese society, and worked with enthusiasm in social, medical, development and humanitarian fields. This mission needed an effective presence in all over the country, especially in marginalized areas, so through its 24 Primary Health Care Centers and 6 Mobile Medical Units, Amel has been involved for more than 36 years in Lebanon’s most vulnerable areas in Beirut’s southern suburbs, Mount Lebanon and the Bekaa valley (Lebanon East), all the way to South Lebanon. We have offered through these centers 8 million services for to the people of Lebanon since Amel’s creation and 1.6 million interventions with the Syrian refugees through the past 6 years. You can understand more about our center’s mission, in addition to the ongoing project by reading about each center on the map.
