WHO ARE WE?

We are a charity association called “ABH Beit Mery” (Association de Bienfaisance Al Hara Beit Mery), founded in 1970 by the late “Antoine Assaf”, mayor of Beit Mery and Ain Saade from 1998 to 2005

THE IDEA

“In unity, strength”. This has always been the conviction of our founder, Antoine Assaf, who believed that great sufferings could be eased if shared with caring others.

MAR SASSINE KERMESSE

Until 1992, our only source of income was symbolic membership fees. However, due to expanding services and ensuing expenses, we decided to organize a fund raising event. The famous “Mar Sassine Kermesse” was, thus, born.

THE SPRING RALLY PAPER

  • Why a rally paper?

“Necessity is the mother of invention”. With the deteriorating economic situation in the country and the sharp rise in healthcare cost, our yearly expenses exceeded our revenues. We decided, therefore, to find additional funding sources. Because we believe in hard work, we did not resort to other donors. We decided, instead, to take things into hand and work towards building a sustainable but useful source of income.

  • The strategy

We don’t want your money, just your brain! The fourth Spring Rally Paper will be THE event of the year. For the first time in Lebanon, participation in a Rally Paper will be totally free. Yes! no registration fees! AND the biggest cash prizes in Lebanon.
