International Day of the Families Celebration

When: Friday, May 14, 2021 11:30 -

To celebrate the International Day of the Families this year, we organized a virtual café chat where we invited people to share their family stories, talk about their time growing up and tell us how they are celebrating this special day. It was a light event with many funny moments but also calls to empathy and to opening up your home for those who are not blessed with a family.

We were live on our Facebook and YouTube channel, but because we experienced some technical glitches, we had to edit the live video a bit. Enjoy the video here which captures the best moments of this virtual café chat.
