Since its creation by his spouse, the MP Nayla Moawad, and other prominent Lebanese public figures, the RMF has implemented over the years, a multitude of development projects to support the disadvantaged in society.
Towards this goal, the RMF provides medical care to the poor; develops agriculture and rural enterprises; conducts literacy campaigns and vocational training;encourages public political participation; promotes democratic values; and protects the environment.
The René Moawad Foundation's activities are a tribute to the late President. They promote his liberal ideas, facilitate access to education for the underprivileged, and support the emergence of a responsible citizenry.
