Main Projects / Activities

Bricks Of Hope For Futures Full Of Opportunities
In the aftermath of the blast that rocked Beirut on August 4th, hundreds lost their lives, thousands were injured, and hundreds of thousands of people found themselves on the streets, stripped from their safe haven, and one of the hardest hit areas was Karantina. That’s why, at ACUA, we decided to team with leading Lebanese architects and contractors to give back to the community and help by taking on an entire street in Medawar. Our initiative involves transforming the neighborhood into an “exemplary” street by rehabilitating and beautifying it while maintaining its cultural heritage, and supporting its residents with mental health care to optimize their quality of life. This is the first step to achieving our vision of a developed, sustainable and beautiful Lebanon.
