CELEBRATING INTL WOMEN'S DAY JOY March 08, 2006 7:42 AM

CELEBRATING INTL WOMEN'S DAY 7:37 AM
INTL WOMEN'S DAY HUGS 

Intl Women's Group-Beirut Lebanon organised a lunch at ASHGALOUNA (Our work) A place where widowed women who have no resources are helped. They do embroidery and sell their work and also have luncheons which is truly an experience cause every dish they make is better than the other, almost like home cooked meal.

We were 51 and had a tombola and bought presents from the place itself which in turn was a help to the women there. Lets hope that the women of the CARE2 community can come together and celebrate in the future.

Keepin it real HAPPY INTL WOMEN'S DAY Love

What a nice celebration, Yvonne!  Thanks for informing and inviting us. 

I was particularly pleased to learn that widows were invited too!  In several parts of the world, in fact, they are not allowed to participate in community events, or even family reunions.  It's hard enough to lose a husband, and it's even more difficult to be banned from society!

Blessings and peace,

Giuliana aka Princess Little Rock

I dont understand why should one look at a widow differently....dont understand how she can be changed after the death of her husband, a woman alone but who still has all the qualitites she had before he died.

Break the silence
