    Story

    Hello wonderful people! :)

    As you may know, I will be running in this year's Beirut Marathon (Lebanon) November 12th. I have decided to to raise funds for this one, and have been in contact with AlZahraa Medical Clinic (based in Tripoli, Lebanon) to see how we can help. The clinic requires new backup batteries for their electrical system generator.

    The clinic was established in November 2008, and receives more then 3,000 patients per month who are considered to be poor people. There is no hospital in Jabal Mohsen area which hold a population of more than 60,000 people, and the clinic provides medical services for many of Jabal Mohsen's population and refugees from neighbouring Syria.

    The clinic's mission is to provide medical services to patients at Jabal Mohsen and all it's surroundings for minimal fees, and to provide services for all Lebanese people from different areas and sects.

    The clinic has contracts with Lebanese Ministry of Health, Lebanese Ministry of Public Affairs, YMCA & Médecins Sans Frontières.

    I will be travelling to the clinic in person, and will try my upmost to ensure that all donation amounts will be spent exclusively on equipment I am fundraising for (I will be covering all other costs myself).

    I have been provided an official supplier quote from the clinic, they require 30 batteries in total, the cost after discount coming to $2725 (aprox £2100). The fundraising target will be amended (lowered) according to any cash/Paypal donations.

    Any questions, please do get in contact with me.

    Many thanks for your love and support.

      Lebanon is an amazing place to visit with some seriously breath taking and well preserved historical sites (Baalbek and Byblos in particular!), delicious food, and very warm, welcoming people. I would absolutely recommend Lebanon as a place to visit, and would gladly offer any advice if you would like to know anything about the trip, or running in general! I am blessed :) and thank you all again. Bally x
