Together with our partner organization UM in Lebanon, Wafaa has been able to support some important projects in that country. Lebanon has been flooded with refugees from Palestine and Syria. It is our prerogative to support and help people in need, mostly women and children, who have been suffering and enduring difficult life in refuge.
Together with our partner organization UM Association in Lebanon we have implemented the project and campaign on the early detection of breast cancer for women of 40 years and more. The women were of different nationalities and the project took place in Beirut and Tripoli. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our supporters, without whose help it would not be possible to carry out this project.

On the occasion of the International Day of Peace, Wafaa Vienna, in cooperation with the organization UM in Lebanon, organized an early breast cancer detection campaign in many Lebanese cities and regions: Beirut, Saida, Tripoli, Bekaa Valley.

For the occasion of Eid al-Fitr, Wafaa Vienna organized an entertainment activity for the children in the refugee camp Ein El Helwi in Lebanon. These are Palestinian children, who have spent their entire life in this refugee camp, and will, most certainly, spend most of their lives in a refugee camp. It was fun seeing their happy and worry-free faces.
