SOCIAL AND CULTURAL

The role of social development is to create incentives and attitudes that reinforce the confidence of citizens in their country, society, and state. What the Foundation has undertaken in this sector has been in two directions: general social services as well as promoting the spirit of cooperation. The invigoration of social, cultural, and sporting life is a vital condition for building a strong civil society and for creating an individual who is socially capable and economically productive. On these bases, the Foundation focuses on strengthening civil society and invigorating cultural and sporting activity and all that encourages people to meet and interact.

The Foundation provides help and support to a number of associations that focus on the needs of the handicapped, orphans, the elderly, and other marginalized groups. The Foundation supports the holding of Artisanal exhibits that create incentives to promote local production and marketing. It also sponsors scouting camps and sporting tournaments and other youth activities as well as musical festivals and concerts. The Foundation supports many municipal councils, and educational institutions, and NGOs in their attempts to invigorate cultural life and the preservation of cultural heritage.

Notable projects have included the following:
Theatre, Beino Akkar, and in Municipal Center, Rahbeh, Akkar.
Renovation of the old Bazirkan Souq, Tripoli, in cooperation with the Municipality of Tripoli.
Issam Fares Library, part of the Ajyal Cultural Complex, Kfarhata, North Lebanon.
Issam Fares Sports and Social Complex, Islamic Zakat Organization, Abi Samra, Tripoli.
Support for the Baalbek, Beiteddine, and other festivals.

The Foundation also undertakes significant humanitarian initiatives in times of special need: in 1996 the Foundation provided assistance to the victims of the Israeli attacks in South Lebanon. It also helped in transporting victims for medical treatment outside of Lebanon after the Qana massacre in that year.

After the liberation of South Lebanon in May 2000, the Foundation provided support to social organizations and institutions in the newly liberated areas.
