March 21, 2016: Lebanese Mother's Day Celebration
Event Held under the Auspices of Ms. Carla Jazzar, Chargé d'Affaires a.i. at the Embassy of Lebanon in DC.
The Christian Lebanese Foundation in the World (CLFW) & Project Roots were very happy to invite women of Lebanese descent residing in the area to this event that we held for the first time in Washington, DC. Our objective was to celebrate Lebanese mothers living in our region and to seek their support to help preserve our Lebanese heritage by maintaining diversity in Lebanon.
This was not a fundraising event; just a Lebanese Mother's Day Celebration fully sponsored by CLFW. It was the beginning of a series of events we intend to hold in this region (and later all over the US, in addition to our campaigns) in order to brainstorm with our community to find additional ways to bring our cause forward.
