Our Story

Banin Story
It all began during the July War in 2006.

Mohamad Mukhtar Beydoun and Rabih El Sheikh were employees at local banks. With the suffering all around them, the pair took the decision to take an open vacation from banking and to dedicate their time to helping refugees in Beirut to secure shelter, food, medicine, clothes and supplies to cover all their needs.

They accessed to public and private schools, empty buildings and Sanayieh Park where they sheltered refugees and provided with everything they needed to meet their needs. Day and night Mohamed managed Sanayieh Park and Rabih managed Shakieb Arsilan Mix Public High School in Verdun.

After the war ended they felt blessed and realized how important it was to give back to society and to help people in need.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who has supported our work. We could not do this without you and we value your continued help and support.

Banin Women's Club

Many common cultural beliefs shared amongst Lebanese citizens can act as barriers that limit Lebanon from developing and moving forward. One of the most significant cultural barriers is gender discrimination, an issue that women have been facing since the beginning of time. However, nowadays, thanks to modern ways of thinking, the crucial role of women within society has been highlighted through their participation in the economic, social, and educational realms. We at Banin Organization strongly believe that women play a very important role in the development of our society so we decided to launch “Banin Women’s Club”. 

Through Banin Women’s Club we aim to pursue the goals of Banin Organization, to stand by the side of those in need, giving them our full support, in addition to supporting orphans and helping them to live better lives and meet their needs. In addition, we aim to empower women so they may face issues that might otherwise hinder them from living a fulfilling life head-on, including abuse and discrimination. As with everything else we do, all of our work is undertaken free of political or religious affiliation.
