Dassault Aviation donates medical equipment worth 150,000 euros to support Lebanon
BEIRUT: Following the explosion that ripped through Beirut on August 4, Dassault Aviation decided to sign an agreement to support the Lebanese NGO Nawraj.
The France-based aircraft manufacturing company will buy and dispatch medical equipment worth €150,000 for a hospital in the Gemmayze district, which suffered extensive damage in the blast.
“We were greatly affected by the tragedy in Beirut. Dassault Aviation has a long history of friendship with Lebanon. The country’s air force has been equipped with Mirage III and several Lebanese nationals are loyal Falcon customers”, said Eric Trappier. “Contributing to the movement of solidarity initiated by the French President, Mr. Emmanuel Macron, is an obvious choice for us.”
The agreement signed on Tuesda at Dassault Aviation headquarters in Saint-Cloud by Fouad Abou Nader, President of Nawraj, and Eric Trappier, Dassault Aviation Chairman and CEO in the presence of Rami Adwan, Ambassador of Lebanon in Paris, Ambassador Pierre Duquesne, Interministerial Delegate in charge of Mediterranean Affairs, and Mr. Gwendal Rouillard, member of the National Assembly representing Morbihan who co-chairs the study group on Christians in the Middle East and minorities.
