CADFA were happy to celebrate International Women’s Day this year in London together with our local community centre KTCC. It was a great day! In the afternoon, women from CADFA and from KTCC shared skills of many sorts – languages, henna, egg-decoration, shiatsu, knitting, Bollywood dance. In the early evening, we had Lebanese food, the CADFA film Stories from our Mothers (you can also watch it here) and speakers from CADFA, KTCC and a local refugee campaign.
The evening was the high point – the hall filled up and we had singers and music: Claire Birkett, Pandorasdiary and the Soula Ensemble – with Shahd Abusamra performing and leading dabkeh. What a wonderful atmosphere.
A big thank you to all performers and helpers and to the audience who were wonderful too.
