From providing financial aid for medical procedures to supporting organizations like the “Kids First Association,” which assists children battling cancer and blood disorders, the association has made a tangible difference in the lives of countless individuals.

Through live broadcasts and online platforms, the telethon engages viewers and encourages them to contribute, thereby amplifying the impact of the association’s humanitarian efforts.

As “Les Toits de Beyrouth” continues to evolve and adapt to the changing needs of Lebanon, their commitment to providing hope, support, and solidarity remains unwavering. With each passing year, they renew their dedication to making a positive difference in the lives of those they serve, ensuring that the spirit of compassion and generosity continues to thrive in the hearts of all who support their cause.
