Embrace Gala Dinner 2017
12 September, 2017

On September 12th, Embrace held its second fundraising gala dinner which launched Embrace LifeLine, the first Suicide Prevention Helpline in Lebanon and the MENA region. The Helpline’s campaign “Talking saves lives” was launched in the presence of hundreds of dignitaries and supporters of the cause. The aim of the campaign is to ignite the conversation around suicide and encourage the Lebanese community to start talking about suicide, break the silence around this societal taboo and send their messages of support to those affected by suicide.

The gala dinner was hosted by TV host and spokesperson Wissam Breidy, and several of the professional dancers from the popular TV show Dancing with the Stars, a special performance by the Mazen Kiwan Academy and ended with the beautiful performance by Manel Mallat.
