Japan supports the Center for Development Services for equipping its dispensary in Zgharta. This support is aimed at improving the health condition of people in a remote area. Ambassador of Japan to Lebanon Mr. Koichi Kawakami and Director of the Center for Development Services in Zgharta, Mrs. Zeina Joukhadar Frangieh, signed the grant contract of US$86,430 to this effect at the Embassy of Japan on 17 March 2010.
This is funded by “Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Project (GGP)” of Japan.

Japan has so far extended through GGP more than US$ 9 million since 1996.
