About us

The SAID NGO carries out diverse educational events throughout the year to increase the awareness about colorectal cancer in Lebanon and to inform the public about the importance of early screening. The ultimate goal is to augment the total number of men and women being screened in the absence of any symptom starting at the age of 50

Although the colon cancer treatment journey could be a little rough, having someone (a survivor) to talk to, will make it so much easier. That is why I will dedicate as much time as needed with @SAID NGO to anyone whose journey I can make easier
“Cancer may have started the fight but
with the support of SAID NGO
and the strength behind each smile
we hold for others we will conquer it”
“I am blessed to be a part of the family of SAID NGO.
I passed through cancer and I know the importance of support to cancer patients, which is one of the pillars of the mission of SAID NGO. Spreading awareness and offering support with them, gives me great satisfaction.”
