Loyac’s “9efna `3air” final event

I was invited by Loyac to their final “9efna `3er” event in 360 mall last Thursday. This summer was absolutely different!

I was surprised by the increasing number of volunteering committees and the passion the students had put in their work.

I posted two videos earlier that were made by Loyac’s committees I will provide the links at the end of this post.

The event also involved an act by Loyac’s Drama club directed by Dr. Nagy Sourati one of  the Star Academy Judges and an interesting Music  act by “Flamengo”  Music Band.

It was an event full of both the elements of fun and raising awareness!

Good Job Loyac, Keep it up!
