We believe that all humankind should have access to good quality health care.
Health services for poor and marginalized groups are often highly dispersed and severely under-resourced, while development aid is often fragmented because of a lack of coordination among donors and providers.
In fulfilling its commitment to offer assistance to those in need, MFA works closely with Makassed Hospital and Health Care Bureau (MHCB) in Lebanon to provide affordable, high-quality primary, secondary and tertiary medical care that addresses the full range of medical problems (physical, mental and emotional) that marginalized populations in Lebanon may experience.
Since its foundation in 1930 in Beirut, Makassed General Hospital (MGH) provides patients with high-quality and affordable services for all kinds of illnesses, diseases or injuries. It started as a small building with 13 doctors and 10 nurses.
In 2018 alone, MGH provided medical care to more than 15,000 Lebanese, Syrian and Palestinian inpatients and 60,000 outpatients.
MGH is equipped with the service capabilities needed to support a qualified staff of 150 medical specialists and other licensed physicians, 400 nurses and 350 administrative staff.
