To the Nobel Peace Prize Committe
Lebanon deserves Peace:
Endorse Amel Association International's Nomination for the Nobel Prize
predicted to be a short lived crisis, the Syrian disastrous situation has now
been going on for five years. 1.5 million Syrian refugees have been received by
Lebanon thus making up more than 35% of the total population in the country. Although
the consequences are dreadful, the Lebanese citizens continues to demonstrate
fraternity and solidarity.
on a non-sectarian approach, Amel Association International (Amel) represents
the Lebanese committed citizens as a whole without distinction and is actively
working alongside communities towards alleviating the dramatic humanitarian disaster.
Deeply rooted in a profound commitment to social justice and comprehensive
dignity, Amel is devoted to building an environment conducive to establish
peace in a war-torn region and advocates for a citizen-driven and committed
action as the only long-term legitimate and sustainable response to both
violence and terror.
is a non-sectarian Lebanese NGO created in 1979 by its dedicated founder,
Doctor Kamel Mohanna, as an urgent local and field-based response to the
intolerable repercussions of the civil war, which broke out in 1975 in Lebanon.
Through its 24 medical centers and 6 mobile medical units throughout Lebanon,
Amel continues to provide indispensable services to the most vulnerable
populations, such as the marginalized Lebanese, Palestinian and Syrian
refugees. With the provision of more than 1 million services to Syrian refugees
while pursuing its support of all other populations in Lebanon affected by the
Syrian crisis since April 2012, the NGO plays a key-role in the local and operational response. Putting its beneficiaries as a first priority, Amel
continues its work in despite of Daesh’s attacks on its center in Ersal (North
Lebanon) thus taking part in fighting terrorism on a broader level.
positive thinking and permanent optimism, Amel’s approach and actions represent
a strong catalyzer for solidarity, fraternity and social change. Honoring Amel Association International with the Nobel Peace Prize would be a strong message
of support and a distinguishing way to honor the efforts of a whole population to build peace in a war-torn region that more than ever needs
international backing to achieve stability.
Support Amel Association International's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. Your signature counts!
