Zakat Foundation of America Opens a Second Health Clinic in Lebanon
In September 2011, Zakat Foundation of America opened a second clinic in Lebanon to serve Syrian refugees. Shortly after Syria’s political turmoil began in March, we launched our emergency relief efforts to help Syrian refugees by establishing a health clinic in Wadi Khaled in northern Lebanon.
Since health care is an ongoing and growing need for more than 5,000 Syrians refugees, as well as for the local Lebanese in the region, even this second clinic cannot adequately serve those in need. Many who receive care face a life-threatening condition that requires immediate medical care. Plus, everyone is not able to come to the clinic. We hope, inshallah, we can bring the clinic to them. Consequently, we plan to add a mobile clinic to our health services.
We hope that our donors will rally around these efforts to support this community and our aim of donating a mobile clinic. We pray that, inshallah, health and peace will soon come to the Syrian people.
