A plethora of health-related activities and awareness campaigns took place in Sidon's old souk Khan al-Franj Sunday. South Lebanon's Sidon is one of the first municipalities to host a city-wide health campaign, as part of a new health project entitled "a city free of disease". Khan al-Franj was divided into "wings" similar to those typically found in hospitals, with every wing dedicated to a different activity. There was a wing for children, where they could learn about childhood development, as well as the benefits of exercise and healthy food through fun activities. Nutrition had a wing of its own, with experts explaining what constitutes healthy food, and why people should avoid foods with lots of chemicals, sugar, salt or fat as large amounts can have negative impacts on one's health.Arnaaout said that society as a whole needs improved awareness of diseases, nutrition and healthy lifestyles.
