Our Mission

icon

SHEILD aims at bringing relief to the population in general and to those who suffered, and still suffer, from war as well as from the absence of governmental health services, social care, economic assistance and protection in particular.

In order to achieve its mission, SHEILD provides direct assistance and community based interventions to enhance human rights, social awareness, economic conditions, access to food and services and protection for all Lebanese community categories as well as for other inhabitants living in the same intervention areas.

SHEILD operates through a participatory approach involving coordination between local stakeholders and authorities to assess the needs and implement programs responding to such needs while focusing on the most vulnerable and deprived communities.

SHEILD operates in absolute harmony with the principles of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights and The Arab Charter on Human Rights. People in need must be assisted with no discrimination based on race, gender, religious belief, nationality, ethnic origin or class.
