METLIFE FOUNDATION COMMITS $25 THOUSAND TO CHILDREN'S CANCER CENTER OF LEBANON (CCCL) IN RESPONSE TO COVID-19
Lebanon, May 20, 2020
MetLife Foundation announced it is committing $25 thousand to Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon (CCCL) in response to COVID-19. The grant funding from MetLife Foundation will support curing kids with cancer and cover their treatment costs.
CCCL has never stopped covering all treatment costs of around 300 patients fighting cancer, while reassuring them and their families safety and security. However, today, due to the lack of funds locally and being out of reach, also with the deficit in funds with the current situation, CCCL might not be able to treat the same number of patients given the actual funds and projections.
Hence, we, at MetLife Foundation, join hands with CCCL to survive this pandemic phase; support the center to save lives and navigate our children’s life together.
“Being next to our little ones, especially in the utmost needs, is our mission at MetLife Lebanon, and CCCL gives us the opportunity to extend a hand to navigate hope together with the children” said MetLife Lebanon General Manager Carl Tachdjian.
MetLife Foundation’s plan to continue organizing other donation funds for different organizations in Lebanon where they can make the biggest difference in helping people recover from the pandemic.
