USAID-USP Scholar Joins Forces with the Lebanese Red Cross at Refugee Settlements

Mario Sassine, a University Scholarship Program (USP) scholar studying at the American University of Beirut (AUB), recently completed a community-based internship with the Lebanese Red Cross.

Mario was part of a team that visited informal refugee settlements, raising awareness on health-related issues, offering sanitation and hygiene products, conducting surveys for the needs assessment, and promoting COVID 19 vaccination.

This campaign will help prevent future illnesses and improve the quality of life of those living in the settlements.
