(11 March 2010)
Japan supports Al Farouk Medical Centre for equipping its medical laboratory in Zahleh. This support is aimed at improving the health condition of people in a remote area. Ambassador of Japan to Lebanon Mr. Koichi Kawakami and General Director of Al Farouk Medical Centre, Sheikh Ghanoum Nassabein, signed the grant contract of US$61,582 to this effect at the Embassy of Japan on 11 March 2010.
This is funded by “Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Project (GGP)” of Japan. Japan’s GGP supports development projects at grass-roots level proposed by such bodies as nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and local governmental authorities in Lebanon. Japan has so far extended through GGP more than US$ 9 million since 1996.
