Japan will donate US$ 76,800 through its Grassroots Grants Program to Baakleen Medical Center. Ambassador of Japan to Lebanon Mr. Yoshihisa Kuroda and the Director General of the center, Dr. Marwan Abu Ayash, signed a contract to this effect at the Embassy of Japan today.
The grant aims at equipping the laboratory of the center with modern medical instruments.
Japan’s Grassroots Grants Program has so far extended more than US$ 7.6 Million since 1996 to finance development projects throughout Lebanon proposed and implemented by municipalities, NGOs, hospitals, private schools, research institutes, and other non-profit organizations.
