in the Palestinian Gathering of Qasmiyeh
(29 October 2010)
Japan supports Popular Aid for Relief and Development（PARD） for equipping its health centre in the Palestinian Gathering of Qasmiyeh. 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 PARD, Dr. Said Ladiki, signed the grant contract of US$22,009 to this effect at the Embassy of Japan on 29 October 2010.
This is funded by “Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Project (GGP)” of Japan. Japan’s GGP supports development projects at grass-roots level proposed by such bodies as nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and local governmental authorities in Lebanon. Japan has so far extended through GGP more than US$ 9.6 million since 1996.
