On Tuesday 5 February 2019, a delegation led by Isabelle Rosabrunetto, Director General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, received Marwan Sehnaoui, President of the Lebanese Association of the Knights of the Order of Malta (ALCM), at the Ministry of State, in the presence of H.E. Mr Umberto Di Capua, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Order of Malta in the Principality.

The meeting highlighted the importance of the partnership between the Government and the ALCM, and follows a ministerial visit to Lebanon in April 2018, when Gilles Tonelli, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, was able to see for himself the project that Monaco’s Official Development Assistance is supporting in Kefraya, in the Beqaa Governorate. This is a project which aims to improve living standards for elderly people in rural areas, particularly with regard to health care, by maintaining a social network.

Since 2017, the Principality of Monaco has been increasing its support for vulnerable groups in Lebanon as the country faces significant challenges due in part to the crisis in Syria. In 2020, the partnership between the Prince’s Government and the ALCM could be extended in areas of shared interest, such as health or support for people with disabilities.

The actions taken together with the ALCM fall under the framework agreement signed by the Prince’s Government and the Order of Malta in 2012.
