Her Majesty also visited and checked on one of the residents, a 96-year-old woman. She also thanked the team running the home and commended the quality of service and care provided.

The home — run by the Franciscan Sisters of the Cross Congregation of Lebanon — is built on a plot of land donated by Late Father Yousef Ne’mat, whose daughter is currently a nun at the Home. Father Ne’mat also contributed the cost of construction. Services provided by the home are considered of high standard and include nursing, spiritual and human care in addition to entertainment services. Father Hikmat Haddadin contributed a seed fund to start the building of a new extension.”
