Establishing the Kfarfalous Cultural and Medical Compound

Year: 1979


Program: Socio-Economic Development


Sectors: Economy, Education, Governance, Infrastructure & Services, Internet Communication & Technology, Labor, Health, Social Welfare & Livelihood


The Kfarfalous compound is located almost halfway between Saida and Jezzine, at an altitude of 500 meters and stretching over a surface of one million square meters of tree-covered hills. The compound includes a university that started with an Industrial Engineering Faculty, Food Agriculture Faculty, Nursing School, and a pilot K-12 school.


Residential buildings for employees and students were built, which consequently turned the compound into a new city in summer 1982. While the construction of the Technical School was underway, the invasion took place and led to the suspension of construction of the Sports Compound and the School for the Rehabilitation of the Disabled.
