THEIR RIGHT TO HEALTH
Who we are
Access to healthcare services is a basic human right. Everyone in Lebanon, regardless of income, nationality, education, or gender should have access to high quality healthcare. We started an international movement that developed a systematic and inclusive roadmap to improve community health. We worked for four months in the Karantina area with families, young and old, to identify their health care needs and gaps in the healthcare system. In partnership with the Ministry of Public Health, we are introducing comprehensive, evidence based, and affordable services to the Karantina primary health care.
What is صحتن بالدني
“Community Right to Health” or “Their Right to Health” صحتن بالدني is a fundraising campaign where proceeds will go to resources in the Karantina clinic. These include medical supplies and honorariums for community health agents, from all ages volunteering to manage the needs of a community in crisis.
The Karantina community clinic will not only cater to immediate needs but build a long-lasting foundation for preventative healthcare and accessible medical services.
More than 30 participants joined us last year for virtual interactive Bake-Along workshops with prominent chefs like Chef Leyla Fathallah, Dr. Rita Tohmé-Kikano (Mrs. Sucrée), Mrs. Yasmine Idriss Tannir, Mrs. Jihane Dagher (Maman Chocolat), and Mrs. Aline Kamakian (Mayrig Restaurant).
Cost per person was:
- Outside Lebanon: $50
- Inside Lebanon: 50000L.L
