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.
