The Japanese government and the Embassy of Poland in Lebanon, in coordination with the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat), the Polish Center for International Aid in Lebanon and the Municipality of Bourj Hammoud, implemented a multi-sectoral renovation project in Bourj Hammoud’s Maraach neighbourhood.

The funds attributed to the project enabled the restoration of five alleyways in Maraach, which enables dignified living conditions for the people living in the neighborhood through making them more safe, accessible and green.

The Ambassador of Japan to Lebanon Takeshi Okubo commented on the renovation in a Twitter post where he reiterated that “Japan will continue to support initiatives that advance Lebanon’s recovery and sustainable growth.”

While the worsening socio-economic situation in Lebanon continue to deepen, this project has acquired the necessary construction needed to ensure that community members are able to mitigate further distress through the provision of safe pedestrian access and the enhancement of alley aesthetics, which could contribute to the stimulation of economic vitality.
