The Bahrain Red Crescent Society (BRCS) concludes its "Ya Beirut" Booth event at City Centre Bahrain.

The BRCS launched the initiative in solidarity with the Lebanese people after the explosion in Port of Beirut on August 4 which killed hundreds, injured thousands and left hundreds of thousands of people homeless.

The Society's volunteers managed the booth and familiarised mall-goers with the efforts exerted by the Red Crescent in providing relief and humanitarian aid to the needy and afflicted in Beirut.

Ali Kadhem, BRCS's head of public relations committee, said: "The booth is characterised by the enthusiastic commitment of our volunteers, who alternated to manage it for two weeks, every day from 10am to 10pm.”

The Bahrain Red Crescent also cooperated with Calmmess, a Bahraini group dedicated to painting, to extend their exhibition entitled Let us Gather with Art and Love for Beirut. It was held at gate 4 and featured 20 artists.  Proceeds from the sales of their works were donated to the BRCS to then be donated to the Lebanese Red Cross Society (LRCS).

Ameena Ahmed Majed and Danah Naser Al Sayed, the founders of Calmmess, said: “The number of participants reflects the talents and capabilities in spreading peace and togetherness for a humanitarian cause. It also sheds light on the promising Bahraini talents. This is the first art exhibition curated by our group and we trust the chances of being in even bigger exhibitions in the future.”
