Our Mission

The California Lebanese Ladies Organization (“CLLO”) started over 20 years ago by Mrs. Susan Nahas. Its unique vision was to raise funds for the homes of the elderly in Lebanon. For many years, Mrs. Nahas served her mission on her own and was sending financial aids to several elderly homes in Lebanon. A few years later she was joined by Mrs. Amira Matar and the CCLO started operating as a subdivision of another non-profit entity. In February 2016, the CLLO was independently registered as a California nonpartisans organization, formed under the US IRS Tax Code 501 © (3) nonprofit organization. The CLLO continues to be operated by volunteers without incurring any administration expenses.

Thank You To All Our Supporters

The members of this organization are greatly influenced by the love and compassion for the elderly whereby a numerous number of them are left without the love of family, medical assistance, social security and often without a roof. There is an enormous need for our mission and although we are not able to provide them with a full dignified life but with your help we may bring a smile into their wrinkled face.
