Driven by the belief that every new life entering this world deserves the best care possible, ASSAMEH Birth and Beyond came to life in 2016 . We are a non-profit organization that specializes in the rehabilitation and management of pediatric wards in governmental hospitals, dedicated to the care of premature babies and newborns in need of medical support.
Every year Lebanon has around 18,000 premature births and there is a lack of adequate facilities, equipment, and medical staff to cater to the needs of these delicate newborns that are clinging to life. Adding to that, the care offered in private hospitals is extremely high and ranges between 20,000 – 30,000 dollars, and these hospitals tend to decline patients covered by the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) and the Ministry of Health (MOF).
Doctors take an oath “First, do no harm” and for us standing by idly was doing the opposite, so we had to make a change and take action to alleviate this situation.
