(Verified non-profit organisation)

The Association for the Care of People with Epilepsy in Lebanon (ECAL) is an NGO that targets people with epilepsy in order to address their needs. The Association supports patients medically and socially, helping them become active and, if possible, financially independent. The Association has launched a number of programmes and income generating activities to support its work including patchwork and stitching; designing and making tableaux from cocoons; drawing on glass; doing rope artwork; making accessories from beads; and making, wrapping and decorating chocolate. The Association is now hoping to be able to launch a language teaching centre.
