The support will be in the form of several charitable and humanitarian projects concerned with providing direct support to a number of hospitals and primary health care centers in Lebanon.

It will also help in raising the level of healthcare to combat the coronavirus pandemic, and will be directed to some basic educational facilities, and contribute to financing the work of organizations working on offering baby formula and food for the hardest hit people.
