These organizations are: The Lebanese Red Cross, Maharat Foundation, Fifty Fifty, Lebanese Transparency Association (LTA), Foyer De Vieillards, Classe Orange, Gharsa, AL Hayat, Egna Legna Besidat, Iman Medical Association, Ana Hon, ARAE and the Lebanese Union for People with Physical Disabilities (LUPD).
