Community Support Program- CSP in Lebanon

Following the onset of #COVID_19 and, later, the deepening economic crisis in Lebanon, CSP’s home-based health care partners have struggled to purchase essential health care equipment while also keeping their prices stable for underserved clients. “Not only could we not afford to buy equipment, but also we were unable to find personal protective equipment that meets the quality standards of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration,” says Maha Zobian, the head of the quality control unit at Home Care Lebanon, a partner small business under CSP’s workforce development component. CSP responded by delivering a variety of PPE to Home Care Lebanon and two other home-based health care partners, Home Medical Care and Care at Home. The equipment included protective gowns, masks, gloves, face shields, hand sanitizers, disinfectant, and disposable garbage bags. This USAID-supported activity is now enabling 140 home health care workers to continue safely serving hundreds of patients per month.
