Gathering/Meeting, Unveiling of Memorial
“World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims”
In collaboration with the Municipality of Sin El-Fil and in the presence of its Municipality President, Mr. Nabil Kahhaleh, Kunhadi invited a number of parents and friends who lost a loved one on the road, to gather at the Road Traffic Victims Remembrance Garden in Sin El-Fil and inaugurate the third commemoration banner in the garden, honoring the names of 22 young men and women.
Parents and friends were invited to the podium to recount the funniest and happiest memories they share with people they have lost. They then wrote short letters to their loved ones and attached them to helium balloons that they sent up to the sky. This yearly event offers parents moral support by putting them in contact with others who are in similar situation. Sharing their grief and their good memories inspires parents in pain and helps them to make peace with this loss and move on in life.
Kunhadi is a Lebanese non-governmental organization established in October 2006 after the fatal car crash of 18-year-old Hady Gebrane. The organization aims to introduce a new culture of safe driving habits and practices among the Lebanese community, notably youth aged between 15 – 29 years. Its work is founded on Education/Awareness, Improving infrastructure, Providing grieving parents with Moral Support and Training taxi and fleet drivers on defensive driving and the traffic law.
