“Empowering women through education is the only way to stop hatred,” says Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish, founder of Daughters for Life Foundation. “Today’s event recognized these strong women and their accomplishments in their respective fields. Our aim through this gala is to educate people about the potential of Middle Eastern women and how DFL aims to help these women through financial support.”
Dinnertime entertainment included an exclusive performance from Amanda Martinez, a Juno Award nominee and one of Canada’s finest singer/songwriters.
All funds raised through this event go towards supporting Middle Eastern women through education. The Daughters for Life Gala Dinner 2018 supports the empowerment of young Middle Eastern women to achieve their potential through education.
