Japan will provide a grant to provide medical equipment for Lebanon’s Dar Al Ajaza Al Islamia Association’s hospital through the Grant Assistance for Grassroots Human Security Program, as Ambassador MAGOSHI Masayuki signed a grant contract with Dr. Bader Zaidan, General Manager of the Association, on Nov 24.
Founded in 1954, Dar Al Ajaza Al Islamia Hospital provides healthcare in one of Beirut’s impoverished neighborhoods and serves about 10,000 individuals at minimal costs.
Japan will provide advanced ultrasound machines for the obstetrics/gynecology and cardiology departments, which will allow accurate and effective diagnostic processes and will reinstate vital ultrasound services for around 3,000 patients. This grant signifies Japan’s commitment to grassroots healthcare in Lebanon.
During the signing ceremony, MAGOSHI praised the association’s efforts to support the vulnerable communities in Lebanon through its comprehensible medical service, while the association expressed gratitude for Japan’s support and highlighted the importance of the project.
