Fondation Diane was created in May 2015 by Diana Sfeir Fadel as a response to the ecological marasmus in which the country is debating and its disastrous consequences on all levels; environmental, economic, political, cultural … as well as the image of Lebanon in the world and in the heart of the citizens.
