    The Makhzoumi Foundation, established in February 1997, was founded by Mr
Fouad Makhzoumi, who had a vision larger than a dream. He surrounded himself
with a dedicated team, whom hand in hand worked hard to make that dream become
a reality. The Foundation's Mission is working to reach a wide spectrum of the
Lebanese population and guide them to prepare themselves for a better life by
taking responsibility of their education enhancement, self responsibility and
independence as well as encouraging them to preserve the environment and take
preventive measures for good health care. Visit for details.
