Mother's Day Celebration

Last Thursday (29th March 2007) I had the privilege to attend a show presented by the residents of the Amal Institute for the Disabled. The show was organized by the staff to celebrate Mothers Day and give an opportunity for the parents and family of the disabled to visit with their kin, young and old, and see them dancing and acting in well rehearsed sketches.

The show was also attended by 95 year old Mrs. Mournira El Solh, the founder of the Institute. Nassib and his wife Hanan where also in attendance. The show lasted approximately 2 hours and was a complete success. At the end Hanan presented all the mothers with a single rose, and Mounira cut the celebration cakes on display. The food was plentiful and available for all to enjoy.
