Child abuse is a critical issue that has long been neglected in Lebanon. A study conducted in 2008, showed that 1 out of 6 children in Lebanon is a victim of a form of sexual violence. This refers to only 1 out of 4 types of abuse a child can be exposed to physical abuse, psychological abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect.
In light of these alarming results, himaya was founded in 2008 with the notification number 748/2009. The organization has continued to grow, responding to child protection needs on a national level. The dedicated & multidisciplinary team of professionals covers all Lebanese territory with offices in Mount Lebanon, South Lebanon, North Lebanon, and the Bekaa; ensuring accessible services to children across Lebanon.
In order to achieve its mission, himaya works with children as well as their families and the environment as a whole. himaya strives for a radical change on a national level in order to improve the lives of children in Lebanon.
