Japan supports Tekrit Charity Dispensary for equipping its health center in Akkar. This support is aimed at improving the health condition of people in a remote area. Ambassador of Japan to Lebanon Mr. Koichi Kawakami and President of Tekrit Charity Dispensary, Mr. Rislan Khaled Rustom, signed the grant contract of US$81,075 to this effect at the Embassy of Japan on 5 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.
