Sponsorship Program

PSF is seeking sponsorships for the needy underprivileged Palestinian students in the universities that it cooperates with. PSF is interested in the following specialties:

Nursing:

Lebanon is badly in need of nurses. The Minister of health HE Wael Abu Faour stated that Lebanon is in need of 26000 nurses while Lebanon has only 6,000 nurses. The present head of the nursing syndicate  Ms. Doumit gave also nearly the same figures and she is expecting the need to rise in the coming few years due to the expansion of hospitals and health centers. So Palestinian nurses will have very good job opportunities in the Lebanese market.
