Karma (Association for Diseased Children and Adolescents In Lebanon)
Founded in May 2015, Karma is a Lebanese non-profit, non-governmental organisation registered with the Lebanese Ministry of Interior in November 2015 under the registration number 2565. Through fundraising activities and individual donations, they raise money to pay for the tertiary medical treatment of refugee and underprivileged children residing in Lebanon. Karma provides not only financial but also psyho-social relief to children suffering from long-term and severe diseases. These children often come from vulnerable communities and are unable to receive treatment otherwise. Since Karma upholds that every child deserves access to healthcare regardless of nationality, ethnic origin, religion, social class, or diagnosis, they makes no distinction between children receiving support and always aim to assist the underprivileged.
Karma’s main focus lies in funding tertiary health care, i.e. treatment for chronic and severe diseases, of children and adolescents. They work closely with patients and their families ensure that their needs are met and that they understand both the treatment and health care system here in Lebanon. Karma’s members and volunteers know each case intimately, and therefore every child patient has a face and name.
Karma is organized by passionate and dedicated people. Every member of their team operates on a voluntary basis. They share the common belief that everyone has a right to health care and they work hard to make that a reality. All of the funds they raise goes toward paying for medical treatment for children.See more
