UOB and Ministry of National Defense Sign Agreement

On August 3, 2015, the University of Balamand signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of National Defense, under which the University of Balamand Landmine Resource Center would work together with the Lebanese Mine Action Center (LMAC) in spreading campaigns on landmine awareness and on landmine action and safety, enabling affected communities to better manage the risks caused by mines.
The Balamand delegation, headed by Dr Nadim Karam, Vice-President for Health and Community Relations and Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, signed the agreement at the headquarters of LMAC with Brigadier General Elie Nassif, Director of LMAC, representing the Ministry of Defense.

The agreement stems from the mission of the University of Balamand to serve the community, allowing it to do so by working together with the Ministry of Defense as a continuation of the collaboration that commenced in 1997.
