Context

The Prince’s Government and the the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta are bound by a framework cooperation agreement signed in 2012.

In 2004, the Lebanese Association of the Knights of Malta launched a programme to provide assistance to isolated elderly people that the Prince’s Government was keen to support, since Lebanon has long been a country targeted by Monaco’s Official Development Assistance.

Specific objectives

  • To provide access to healthcare services for 950 elderly people in Kefraya and Roum
  • To prevent the social isolation and withdrawal of 950 elderly people in Kefraya and Roum
  • To enable 950 elderly people to retain their independence in Kefraya and Roum

Beneficiaries

950 elderly people who make use of day centres in Kefraya and Roum.
