Personal Projects

A.D.Mountaineering – Remote Outreach Initiative (ADM-ROI)

A.D. Mountaineering is a private mountaineering club which I established in 2006. Later in 2008 and following several mountaineering trips to more distant regions of my country, I have had the opportunity to meet some of the resilient people living within these areas, and gain a better understand of their way of life. This experience has inspired me to create the Remote Outreach Initiative. This is an especial program aimed to provide free spinal screening, in particular, for children and adolescence living in isolated rural regions who may have limited access to spine care.

Nature Photography – H. Sabbagh

Nature Photography has been my passion for many years. It has provided me with the opportunity to exhibit the incredible beauty and diversity of the wilderness ranging from the mountains to deserts, and the amazing wildlife they support. I have also found photography to be an effective tool in raising awareness of our fragile environment, as well as to help further emphasis the importance of making responsible decisions about variety of ecological challenges we are facing today.
