CARITAS GENERAL DIRECTOR RITA RHAYEM

Brilliance combined with humility, ambition with tactfulness, and charisma with sincerity make for a gifted leader. HOME had the pleasure of sitting down with Rita Rhayem, who embodies these very qualities. Rhayem’s appointment as the first female director of Caritas Lebanon marks a milestone for the organization’s 47-year history. At age 34, she will be impacting the lives of more than 200,000 beneficiaries nationwide and emboldening other women to follow in her footsteps.
