    Our Story

Our Mission

Our mission is to foster a community of awareness, advocacy, support and research to minimize brain injury consequences and optimize the quality of life for the survivors and their families.

Our Vision

Our vision is to help, heal and deliver hope to everyone in Lebanon who is affected by Traumatic Brain Injury.

History

Just Care is a non-profit organisation, founded in 2015 for the purpose of helping families facing hardships after one of their members goes through life-threatening accidents.

Just Care is the result of our family’s personal struggle during which our beloved Justine gets exposed to an unfortunate traffic crash that rendered her to a wheelchair and was classified as a Traumatic Brain Injury profile.

Our Story

Timeline

2019

Why Just Care?

JUSTCARE is a non-profit organization resulting from a family dilemma.
2019

What happened?

In 2014, a fatal traffic injury led to the death of a father and daughter and the catastrophic Traumatic Brain injury (TBI) of the third passenger, a 16-year-old girl, Justine. During her harsh recovery phase, her family gathered their strength to overcome the consequences of the tragedy, and decided to rechannel their devastating plight into a positive cause: JUSTCARE.
2019

What do we offer?

After a long battle with what was medically diagnosed as a severe TBI case, and a long ordeal to see their daughter slowly recovering from her injuries, the family pledged to defend TBI cases and to stand by the side of other families undergoing similar circumstances, supporting them every step of the way, by offering psychological assistance, light mobility equipment and financial support for therapeutic treatment and for medical care to families unable afford them.

Valérie Abou Chacra’s Role?

One of the prominent founders of JUSTCARE is Valérie Abou Chacra, crowned Miss Lebanon and 3rd runner up of Miss World 2015/2016. Inspired by her sister’s case, Valérie took the initiative to participate in the Lebanese beauty pageant, intending to benefit from this positive event to bring back life and hope into her family, and hoping for it to be a good springboard for JUSTCARE.

How’s Justine today?

How’s Justine today?
Justine’s fight with TBI, her resistance and persistence to stay alive, prove that there is light behind the darkest hours, and smiles following moments of despair. Justine’s SMILING face today is the best example of JUSTCARE’s extraordinary power that should be spread on a larger scale! (Click photo to the left to enlarge)

Did You Know?

What we’ve learned so far by experience about TBI

Traumatic Brain injuries are complex and come with many unanticipated consequences. They can range from mild injuries that only require some rest and monitoring, to serious injuries that can result in permanent disability or death.

Traumatic Brain injuries have multiple causes and a host of possible outcomes, and may require specialized diagnosis and treatment. Everyone is susceptible, too, as they affect age groups from infants to the elderly.

Brain injury is complex and its manifestations – typically not physically visible or apparent — are often unique to the individual. The encouraging news is that recent activity in scientific and medical research on brain injury has resulted in a wave of innovative and promising diagnostic, pharmaceutical, rehabilitative, and even preventive options, providing hope and optimism for survivors and their families.
