Edith began her dynamic career in 1967 in Lebanon working for MEA (Middle East Airline) as a flight attendant. After taking several years off to raise a young family, she worked as a sport teacher at the College Protestant in Beirut from 1978 to 1980.
In 1982, she took over the family business, a flower shop and green house based in Beirut which operated across Lebanon. In 1986, she hosted a French TV Game Show at the Lebanese Broad casting television (LBC).
In 1989, with her late husband Anthony and 4 partners, they created KACCH (Kuwait Association for the Care of Children in Hospital). The association is a voluntary non-governmental Organisation which aims to reduce the stresses of hospitalisation on children and their families by providing a supportive child-friendly environment, preparing children and their families for their medical procedures. To date Edith is a board member of KACCH and takes an active part in its development. After 16 years of hard work of all KACCH members, Bayt Abdullah Children Hospice (BACCH) was created. The hospice provides multi-professional palliative care and support children with life limiting or life-threatening illnesses. As of today, the association support 400 children on a yearly basis.
Edith is also an active participant of “Chalhoub Impact”, the Community giving division of the Chalhoub Group and supports numerous initiatives related to Education, Environment and support to cancer patients in the countries where the Group operates in the Middle-East.
