Lebanon has a very high rate of smokers, especially in the underprivileged communities. Since government is doing little in the way of public education to warn of the dangerous of smoking, it falls on the shoulders of civil society to initiate public awareness campaigns.

 

PARD prepared five exhibitions in five different locations:

- Sabra

- Ain El Hilweh Camp

- Beirut (UNESCO Palace)

- Borj El Shamali Camp

- Bromana Summer Camp

               

345 Children & 323 Youth participated.

               

The main goal was to reach out to people for changing their practices towards a healthier & free of smoke life style.

 

Objectives were:

 

                        - to reduce smoking

                        - to promote recycling initiatives

                        - to develop a mobile exhibition that could serve as a model for further activities

Rodent & Vector Control

Spraying of insesticides

 

Rodents and insects constituted a major source of nuisance to the residents of the gatherings, especially during summer when the number of insects increases tremendously. To control the problem, PARD implemented four spraying campaigns in each of the 9 gatherings in the South and five gatherings in Beirut. A time lag of 1 month is taken between the initial spraying campaign and the second whereby afterwards, a 10-day time lag is required. Concerning the quantity of insesticides dissolved in water, instructions are followed in accordance to the brand used, as defined by the country of origin.
