In the face of the tragedy of the situation, a Lebanese association decided to act. Birth and Beyond, a Mother and Child Support Association (ASSAMEH) was founded and is takes care of the hospital's pediatric service. There, behind the walls of this hospital, still riddled with bullets, nurses take care night and day of these infants who need special care due to their high dependency medical situation.
Convinced of the importance of this cause, SOS Chrétiens d’Orient wished to join ASSAMEH in its fight for life. Three volunteer nurses we integrated into the neo natal service between September and December 2016, and this mission provides concrete assistance on the ground. In addition to taking care of babies, newly educated young volunteers share their knowledge and know-how with Lebanese nurses. Working almost 12 hours a day, their dedication is total.
