The Afghan Women’s Centre, along with the Montreal Afghan community, hosted an Afghanistan’s Independence Day celebration at the Centre de Ressources Communautaire de Cote-de-Neiges in Montreal on August 13, 2016. We were pleased to offer a robust cultural experience with live music featuring Hasib Hamnawa, as well as dancing, a fashion show, and poetry reading. Thank you to all of our special guests and speakers, including Afghan Embassy representative, Mr. Daud Qauimi.
We were thrilled to be able to celebrate our culture and history and excited for the opportunity to share it with our friends and communities throughout Montreal. Thank you to everyone who came out to eat, dance, and share this special day with us!
