Soraya Zattar Mouawad is the initial founder and president of APAF Lebanon.

She holds a degree in interior design and architecture from Académie de la Grande Chaumière, France, but her true passion has always been animals. She retired from her career as a designer a few years ago and is now focusing on painting and creating eco-friendly art pieces while rescuing, fostering and treating injured, lost and mistreated animals.

Soraya is a strong believer in human and animal rights, and fights every day to create a safe and loving environment for every living soul.
