Vice-president of Animals Lebanon Maggie Chaarawi shed the light on the topic of animal abuse and talked about their petition to make it illegal. Check out this link to know more about it.   www.animalslebanon.org/law/petition

If you are an animal lover we gathered all the information concerning the association.

Animals Lebanon is a Lebanese registered charity, founded on September 9 2008. They are a group of five people who joined efforts to make a change and pushed by their love and compassion to animals. They believe that true compassion is limitless. Animals Lebanon works to protect animals through legislation, education, campaigns and rescue.
Animals Lebanon believes that the treatment of animals is a reflection of how people treat themselves and each other. They believe that the welfare of all animals matters, and are committed to bringing about a time when these beliefs are embraced by society and Lebanon is recognized as a leader in animal welfare.

Some of their work:

• Closed down three of the most dilapidated and abusive zoos, rehoming over one hundred animals to sanctuaries around the world.

• Exposed circus cruelty leading to the closing of a circus.

• Established an adoption center for rescued companion animals, enabling people to rehome hundreds of cats and dogs every year.

• Investigated the smuggling of endangered animals into and through Lebanon and campaigning to ensure Lebanon joins the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species.

• Drafted comprehensive national animal protection and welfare legislation and worked with the World Animal Health Organization and the Government of Lebanon to ensure this legislation is enacted.

• Continue to inspire thousands of people each year to make changes in their lives that improve the welfare of animals.

We also met with singers Zeid Hamdane and Kanjha Kora. The two musicians shared stories on how they met and decided to collaborate. Below is a video of one of their most successful collaboration.

Our nutrition expert Christelle Bedrossian talked about technology, nutrition, the body composition analysis test, the food intolerance test and breating test/indirect calorimeter. You can find all the info in these pictures below.

Hope you enjoyed today’s episode.

See you back tomorrow!
