Maamoul for a Cause!

Easter is around the corner and what’s better than maamoul to celebrate!?

This year a group of friends gathered to prepare maamoul for a cause. Here is what they have to say.

Let’s join them, let’s show them some support ! Order maamoul via “Little Helps” and help needy in Lebanon.

We are friends, we are foodies, we are party animals but we also bake for a Good Cause! Oh and we don’t just bake…we rock in baking!

‘Little helps’…That’s us!


So yes we roll up those sleeves, lay out all the ingredients on the worktop, turn on those ovens and start baking! Whatever revenue comes out of the sale of those yummy baked goods end up as funds for the needy or less privileged.

With today’s economic and social crisis, as well as political unrest in Lebanon, we have joined our hands to Bake for a Cause. Crazy as it sounds here’s our project: Maamoul making , baking , and selling. All funds will be used directly to help the needy in Lebanon coming from various backgrounds. Among whom are the underprivileged living in different regions across Lebanon, orphans, the elderly and the refugees fleeing from Syria seeking shelter.

With your little help we will surely make a BIG difference.

Sales will start during the month of April in Souk el Tayeb Beirut Souks every Saturday!

For all Maamoul pre-orders, do send us an email on

More on Lebanese Mobile Clinics!

We got great feedback regarding the Travel & Smile Lebanon – Mobile Dental Clinics, discussed in our previous post. We got feedback that there are other mobile clinics in Lebanon, so we thought it’s always good to share what’s going on. We have a guest writer today who will be talking all about it…

More on mobile clinics. The LIONS Club Organization has provided and equipped so far 3 types of mobile clinics:

The mobile clinic for hearing and speech was launched in 2010. This clinic can reach villages all over the country through agreements with the municipalities or local health centers. It provides new equipments to test for hearing and speech especially for kids and newborns.

The first mobile clinic for early detection of breast cancer was launched in 2006 and the second in 2010. The clinics divided into three separate rooms and equipped with a mammography and ultrasound machines as well as printing devices. It is used both for exams but for awareness campaigns as well.

The mobile clinic for sight called: Knights of sight was launched in 2012. It includes a chart projector, auto-kerato/refractometer, trial lenses and universal trial frames, auto-lens meter and other devices needed for examination. Aside from the free exams this clinic provides, it also presents glasses for those in need and it is also used to perform free eye surgeries if needed.

To be able to receive these free services the municipalities or local health centers of needed villages and towns can get in contact with the LIONS organization governorate in Baabda on these numbers: +961 5 951417 or +961 5 455352.  And if you need more information or what LIONS do, you can also visit the district website on

Below are pictures of the launch of the Knights of Sight mobile clinic in 2012 with Governor Nabil Rousse and Head of the committee his wife Nada Rousse in Byblos Jbeil.
