Engineers Without Borders Lebanon organized a field trip to the Maronite Retirement Center in Ain El Rimmaneh.

The field trip was organized for EWB University Chapter students with two major aspects in mind, intending to introduce the students to the importance of engineering in society development.

The first is the technical aspect, which included a technical tour led by Mr. Bernard Ammoun, EWB Member and CEO of Green Future Lebanon, who performed the implementation of a solar water heating system, an enhanced efficiency boiler, and improved thermal insulation at the facility.

The second is a social aspect that intended to immerse the students in the reality of elderly centers. This was met while the students were touring and moving from one floor to another, seeing the elderly living with the basic needs.
Students were very touched during the visit, which added to their enthusiasm to help this center and other non-profit institutions through technical and scientific support.  

The delegation included students from AUB, NDU, and Alba in coordination of EWB-AUB and EWB-NDU.
