THE STORY

In 2015, His Grace Bishop Guy Paul Noujaim, the founder and chairman of Oum el Nour Board, decided to establish a sister organization of Oum El Nour in one of the neediest countries in Africa, Liberia, where drug awareness and rehabilitation center is strongly needed.

Oum el Nour Liberia, Inc. is officially registered under registration No. 051741420 – Code Q8890 as a Non-Governmental Organization under the registry of the Republic of Liberia  on the 8 of June 2016. Oum el Nour is committed to the rehabilitation of substance users and prevention programs.

Oum el Nour identity and vision is to perceive drug addiction as a multifaceted problem requiring a comprehensive service that can cater to all the dimensions of addiction and designed to prevent, rehabilitate and reintegrate. It is necessary to mention that addiction affects not only its beholder but his/her family and surroundings. Thus, three levels of prevention are addressed by the association: the primary prevention that affects “healthy” people, the secondary prevention which affects occasional substance consumers, and finally, prevention which targets substance users.
