Therefore, it is our duty to lead this battle, the battle of security and health security for the Lebanese citizen.
For his part, President of the Lebanese American University, Dr. Michel Moawad, praised” Sawa Li Lubnan” for this health initiative, saying: “This is not the first time that Sawa Li Lubnan has undertaken such an initiative, aimed at increasing communal immunity and health awareness.” He added, “We look forward in the future to permanent work with the “Sawa Li Lubnan” movement through several health campaigns aimed at supporting the citizen under these dire circumstances.
Moreover, rapid tests were distributed to every citizen who came and received a dose of the Pfizer vaccine, in order to mitigate the spread of the Corona epidemic and reach the community immunity that Lebanon needs.
