My friends, I do need your support.

Since 2007, I have been undertaking several field operations aiming at protecting our environmental heritage and, since the end of the 2006 war, I have supported projects led by relief agencies and operations of bomb disposal, drinkable water delivery, power generators and wires set up, etc. I managed all this strictly relying on my personal resources – only for bomb disposal and power generators set up was I supported by Finul in Lebanon.

I am currently preparing projects that will be led by Mawassem Khair (Bluegreen in Lebanon) and that aim at raising funds for our bomb spotting and disposal in Lebanese villages as well as planting olive trees, cedar trees and other trees that are specific to the Lebanese ecosystem.

Other projects are dedicated to: air quality in Bayreuth and bringing nature back in town; creating a protected marine area to preserve our seacoast biodiversity; help municipal departments for waste and wastewater disposal.

I attended and took part in several seminars and forums about ecology and how to protect the environment, and I must say these projects require a large amount of time.

As for wildfires, they represent tragic issues that need to be addressed. As I just obtained 3 firetrucks, I call on the Lebanese community active on Facebook and other social networks to raise funds as fast as possible to have these firetrucks shipped to Lebanon.

Help us in our bomb disposal and tree planting actions. Help us fight against wildfires caused by unconscious persons.

For every 10-dollars gift, I will plant a pine.

For every 20-dollars gift, I will plant an olive tree and will send you its oil after 2 years. If you are located in Lebanon, transportation will be free of charge.

For every -25 dollars gift, I will plant a cedar tree. You will receive its picture and, if you wish, the GPS code with which you will be able to follow its growth on Google Earth.

I need 10,000 Euros to ship the 3 firetrucks.

Click on “Donation” on this page and bring us your support.

To those of you who are interested but who can’t afford a donation now, I kindly ask them to spread and share this message through their network. This is valuable help too.

Fighting against wildfires

Over 20% of grassland and forest lanscape were lost in flammes over the last three summers

Bomb disposal

Over 4,000 cluster bombs and over 100 bombs removed, some of which weighed up to 600 kilos (around 1300 pounds)

Over 20,000 trees replanted across Lebanon; our ambition is to replant 1 million additional trees with acorns

Clearing forests

Several awareness campains and cleaning operations for forests, beaches and rivers

Lebanon is not a trash can!

Waste disposal and recycling

Several support actions in favor of waste disposal projects. Municipalities dreadfully need support as the sale of recycled items barely covers 20% of operating costs.

BLUEGREEN France is a non-governmental organization whose main mission is to take action for the protection of the environment as well as to promote biodiversity over the Southern seacoasts of the Mediterranean Sea, the Sub-Saharan Africa’s shores, and in a general manner in all our planet’s regions struck by environmental crisis and disasters that require urgent, realistic and sustainable solutions.

BLUEGREEN France aims at strengthening its actions in the fields of reforestation, wastewater and fumes treatment, easier access to drinkable water, waste management, food self-sufficiency (through the promotion of organic agriculture and wild plants) and the protection of endangered species. To achieve these goals, the organization plans to bring assistance to municipal departments, which are usually in search of resources and expertise, in order to deploy these projects.

Our projects in 2012

« 1001 Jardins de l’espoir » (“1001 Hope Gardens”) - Development of domestic gardens in Africa designed for destitute families.

« 1001 fontaines de l’espoir » (“1001 Hope Fountains”) - Developement of drinkable water fountain.

Thank you for your support
