Medrar: the Arabic term for “Abundance”
Medrar is a non-profit non-governmental organization. Medrar's objective is to provide humanitarian and development assistance to the most impoverished communities in Lebanon and countries across the Middle East and Africa. Its success in implementing large-scale charitable projects was followed by its official registration as a non-governmental organization in 2010.
Medrar has supported over 250,000 people in Lebanon and abroad through the provision of healthcare, shelter, distribution, access to education and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services. Medrar’s work is focused on the short and long-term, direct and indirect impacts of human conflicts and war, ensuring that the most urgent needs of refugees and affected people are met in order to restore and preserve their basic human dignity.
Having a responsibility to contribute to humanity and serve the needs of local and vulnerable communities, Medrar inspires people to go beyond their duty and help improve the welfare of society. In 2014, Medrar acquired a presidential decree 11110 in Lebanon, classifying the organization as a public service NGO. Subsequently, in May 2015 Medrar was granted a consultative status at the Economic and Social Council at the United Nations.
