Every year, as the holidays approach, families around the world gather together to celebrate with festive decorations, feasts of all flavors and varieties and often also an exchange of gifts. What’s very easy to forget during these times of feasting and celebrating is the fact that there are so many families in Lebanon that are struggling sick babies & a very low income, holiday gifts and elaborate parties just aren’t in the picture for them.

Together we can cheer up these kids in need at Birth & Beyond, Quarantina Pediatric Center and share the joy of Christmas with 50 Lebanese families.

Help us raise funds to get 32 gifts for the 32 kids that will be at the hospital on Christmas Day. We are also planning to equip the nursery beds with 20 baby mobile. To keep up with the Christmas spirit a small feast will be held for the kids and their families.

Additional funds will be donated to support the NGO’s mission.

About the NGO

Every year in Lebanon, 70 000 babies are born, of which 12% (9000) are premature. The cost for treating a premature baby in Private Hospitals varies between $20,000 and $30,000. Moreover Private Hospitals tend not to accept patients covered by the Daman or the Wizara especially when treatments are complex or long time consuming.

Unfortunately, Government hospitals do not carry enough specialized medical equipment and staff to handle such high number of patients.

The key challenge was to create adequate facilities that will ensure the current and future Lebanese new born and premature babies to receive the right level of specialized care.

Birth & Beyond – Assameh (Association d’aide à la Mère et à l’Enfant à l’Hôpital) a non profit organization, established in February 2014 by Professor Robert Sacy from the St. George University Hospital came to live.

Since the opening of the ward in feb 2016 : 350 children have been treated.(150 premature intensive care, 72 intensive care, 128 general pediatrics.)
