ACUA Foundation has embarked on a transformative mission to combat irregular migration, marked by a groundbreaking seminar series that kicked off with a pivotal conference at the Safadi Cultural Center in Tripoli on February 11, 2023. This milestone event, attended by distinguished figures including Minister Bassam Mawlawi and Dutch Ambassador Hans Peter van der Wood, solidified ACUA’s commitment to raising awareness and driving constructive change.
At the heart of this initiative was the debut screening of the powerful documentary ‘الهروب إلى الأعماق,’ shedding light on the urgency of the irregular migration crisis. The campaign continued with a poignant awareness video, directed by Elie F. Habib, featuring survivors and actors, airing on Lebanese TVs since September 26, 2023.
With a draft law against irregular migration awaiting deputy signatures, ACUA’s comprehensive project aims to reduce risks, offer psychosocial support, and provide alternative livelihoods in Tripoli and Akkar. Aligned with ACUA’s values of human rights, community development, and advocacy, this endeavor addresses societal challenges and builds a resilient Lebanon.
