How are the problems solved?

We intend to reach each and every authority in Lebanon, whether it is the Ministry of Public Works, the Ministry of Interior, Municipalities and Private Associations.

Currently, the problems will be reported to the relevant authorities by email (where possible), Twitter (if registered), and Facebook . Those authorities are granted access to view, acknowledge and resolve the problem the way they normally would.

Alternatively, you can discuss the problem on the website with others, and then together vote to fix it.
