Social Assistance & Humanitarian

As a part of its ongoing humanitarian mission, AGBU Lebanon has established dispensaries equipped with dental clinics and pharmacies in Armenian-dense areas of Lebanon. There are currently two such centers under the umbrella of AGBU Lebanon, the Beirut dispensary, established in 1942, and the Antelias which was established in 2007 under the patronage of benefactor Mrs. Leyla Solh Hamedeh.

Diagnosis and nursing care, such as glucose testing, blood pressure checks, and injections, are also available at these locations. A number of generalists and specialists regularly visit the dispensaries to offer counseling, guidance and medical exams. Several programs have been launched to spread health awareness in schools, especially around issues regarding oral and dental hygiene.
