Shifaa, an NGO that encompasses a profound belief in the value of human life at its essence, provides an opportunity for community members to donate time, blood, money or connections to help save patients (especially kids) in need of hospitalized operations by top medical talent through a multidisciplinary collaborative approach.
Serve the community
Helping poor patients in need of life threatening operations through alleviating the hospital bills
Acting as a bridge between blood donors and patients in need of blood.
To build an integrated network of members, volunteers,donors, as stakeholders in a life investment opportunity.
Shifaa was founded in 2002 by a group of friends to show their commitment and empathy towards their community. Their aim was to establish a non profit, non-governmental organization that focuses on donating blood to people in need and saving as many lives as possible.
One single drop of blood may not be much to some, but to others, it is the difference between life and death. By implementing a blood donation project, ‘Collaboration for Life’, that highlights the importance of human lives through social and medical services, Shifaa got registered in the Lebanese Religious Courts (#42/22) as ‘Waqf Shifaa for Blood Donation’.
11 years later, Shifaa’s activity spectrum grew wider and expanded to funding life threatening medical operations for needy patients .As a result , Shifaa obtained an official license of practice (Notice #170) from the Ministry of Interior and Municipality, to run under ‘Shifaa NGO for the Humanitarian Act’.
Today, Shifaa has built a loyal network of partners, members, volunteers, donors and sponsors.
It currently encompasses 3 committees that carry its mission and vision:
