The Children's Cancer Center of Lebanon launched a new campaign Friday that would allow people to donate to the charity directly from their smartphone.CCCL is a nonprofit association that deals with the treatment of children with cancer, and was set up 13 years ago.According to a 2012 National Health Statistics Report, there were almost 200 children under the age of 15 who were diagnosed with cancer in 2007, 3.8 percent of the total cancer cases in Lebanon. Choueib is hoping that this campaign will help them raise more funds as the organization relies entirely on donations. The new app will be available throughout 2015 and may be renewed next year if the campaign is successful, she said.
