OPERATION "MEDICAL RESCUE"








Following the violent events inflicted on Lebanon this summer, medical supplies became scare and very expensive for most Lebanese civilians. The siege over the Lebanese air and sea ports remained for weeks, even after military operations stopped making the humanitarian situation worse. Around 4000 civilians were injured during the violent conflict, many of whom will require long term medical care including the need for medications. Several humanitarian organizations in the US are still gathering donations in the form of medical supplies, medications and infant formula for shipping through UN sponsored routes to needy communities and hospitals in Lebanon.


The lebanese community in Iowa particiapated in these efforts. We thank all those who helped make this campaign a success. We encourage each of you to continue supporting the people of Lebanon, through the various ways offered through this and other websites.

Thank you
