Philippe Hatem Foundation

Philippe Hatem was born on 26 May 1998 in Beirut. A little over 11 years later, on 31 July 2009, Philippe died in a tragic accident. His spirit was naturally inclined to love and be compassionate, especially with all those whom life seemed to have left behind. His life may have been short, yet it was meaningful.

Inspired by Philippe, the Philippe Hatem Foundation for a Happy Childhood [PHF] was created in 2009. Eventually established in Geneva, PHF has developed into the parent foundation of several affiliated Happy Childhood Foundations [HCFs] established around the world.

PHF and the HCFs form together a network called the Happy Childhood Global Network [HCGN].
