The Opening Of The Marine Rescue Unit Center In Amchit

The Michel Issa Foundation for Local Development, the CSR arm of IPT, has offered an in-kind donation to the General Directorate of Civil Defense, to establish a marine rescue center in Amchit, along with all its equipments and facilities, a rescue and firefighting-equipped boat, an ambulance, and a complete diving set for all the center’s personnel. 

On April 28, 2023, the center was inaugurated by the Minister of Interior and Municipalities, Judge Bassam Mawlawi, in the presence of the Minister of Tourism, Walid Nassar, the Head of the Maritime Rescue Unit in the Civil Defense, Samir Yazbeck, the Chairman of IPT, Mr. Zakhia Issa, the President of the Michel Issa Foundation, Dr. Toni Issa, and many other political figures and invitees. 

This center will be essential in securing marine navigation, boat traffic, and beach visitors along the Jbeil region's coastline. 

The curtain was then withdrawn from the memorial plaque, and everyone raised a glass to the occasion.
