Night to Shine 2020 was made possible through the support of individuals who believe in the potential of people with special needs and who have advocated for their inclusion either in government or public life. We are thankful for the patronage of His Excellency Dr. Ramzi Moucharafieh, Minister of Social Affairs, represented by Mr. Naji Shmeit, and His Excellency Dr. Richard Kouyoumdjian, previous Minister of Social Affairs. The presence of our ambassador, superstar Ragheb Alama, brought joy to the kings and queens with special needs whom he has supported for many years.
Father Boutros Azar prayed for the event before he joined in crowning our guests as kings and queens of their night. We are also thankful for Hind Baz and Michel Hourany who accompanied the stars and their parents throughout the night.
Joining us in the journey of supporting children and youth with special needs, the NDU team was present at Night to Shine, represented by Mr. Ron Farra, Chair of the Board, and Dr. Bader. Vice President.
We are thankful for the principals of the 12 institutions and specialized schools for the special attention and care they give to children with special needs and for carrying their cause everywhere they go hoping to create change.
