Supporting the Armenian Education Benevolent Union’s effort to improve AEBU’s Nor Hadjen socio-medical dispensary’s medical equipment, the Japanese government awarded AEBU a grant contract of $63,457 US dollars. These funds will be utilized in AEBU’s ongoing proactive efforts of improving the health conditions of Lebanese Armenians specifically along with the general Lebanese populace.

The grant was awarded at a signing ceremony conducted by the Ambassador of Japan to Lebanon Mr. Koichi Kawakami and President of Armenian Education Benevolent Union, Mr. Aram Malian, at the Embassy of Japan on March 23, 2011.

The awarded grant is part of the “Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Project (GGP)” of Japan, which supports development projects at the grass-roots level proposed by such bodies as nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) such as AEBU as well as local government authorities in Lebanon.
