For the sixth year in a row, Makhzoumi Foundation’s “Let’s Sort – Yalla Nefroz” initiative continues.
Out of our strong desire to achieve sustainable development and preserve our environment, Makhzoumi Foundation launched an environmental initiative entitled “Let’s Sort…Let’s Start the First Step Together”, in collaboration with CEDAR-Environmental, back in 2016, aiming at stimulating the neighborhoods of its centers to begin sorting solid wastes (the non-organic). In 2017, UNHCR funded YALLA NEFROZ and Makhzoumi Foundation is implementing it in partnership with Beirut Municipality.
Today, the initiative continues, whereby the drop points in Tarik il Jdideh, Aicha Bakkar, Karem il Zaytoun, Mazraa and Mousaytbeh are available for residents to throw non-organic waste, to be transported by a “Let’s Sort – Yalla Nefroz” truck to be treated by recycling or reusing.
Makhzoumi Foundation, since its establishment, has been spreading environmental awareness, especially among children in schools, focusing on solid waste.
