Ward Al Makassed Empowerment Center

Ward Al Makassed Empowerment Center organized on the 29th of October, 2020 an exhibition in support of the cancer center at Makassed General Hospital

Many handcrafted products such as abayas and embroidered pieces, in addition to food items, made by trained women under the UNDP empowerment project, were displayed on the occasion.

In 2014, Al Makassed set up Ward Al Makassed, the first community development center of its kind in Beirut’s impoverished neighborhood of Tarik Al-Jadidah. Its mission is to provide women and youth with job opportunities, education and capacity-building through rapid vocational training.
