SEAL granted $10,000 to Lebanon Needs Organization to provide 230 Lebanese patients with their needed medications for one month.

Lebanon Needs (LN) is subsidizing the medications through 18 pharmacies across lebanon. LN is buying the medications from these pharmacies at discounted prices, who in turn provide them to the patients for free.

The pharmacies industry is suffering greatly from the economic and financial crisis in Lebanon and patients are less and less able to pay for their medications. Lebanon Needs' goal is to work on two main aspects of healthcare: accessibility and continuity. They are supporting people who do not have access to healthcare while helping pharmacies to turn over their stock and stay in business.

Lebanon Needs is a non-profit organization founded in 2019 dedicated to creating and delivering sustainable healthcare solutions for the underprivileged and underserved Lebanese population.
