About us

Who we are

 

Ahla Fawda is a Lebanese based non-profit organization focused on community development. Our mission is to bring joy to the local communities and improve their immediate environments in a cultural and artistic manner, whilst maintaining an overall “green” ethos” – a prime objective. We also provide humanitarian assistance to poverty stricken communities across Lebanon.

 

Our humanitarian projects accept donations that help low income communities with food, clothing, shoes and literacy. Proceeds from festivals and events  benefit our beautification and humanitarian projects.
