Inaash to host Palestinian embroidery Expo in Dubai

The Lebanese association for the development of Palestinian Camps, Inaash, has organized its first ever exhibition in the GCC region in Dubai. This two day event will be held on 25 and 26 October, 2008, at the Grand Millennium Hotel.

Inaash is an NGO working with the Palestinian women and children in the refugee camps of Lebanon. The organization markets different hand-embroidered garments and items, like pillows, jackets, abayas, stoles, bags, fashion accessories and many others, created by these refugees.

"The profits from this exhibition will be used to renovate the currently cramped Inaash headquarters. With the money, we hope to eventually expand into a cultural center. We would like to open a permanent store to sell our embroidery and develop our educational facilities", Leila Ghareeb, Board Member of Inaash, stated.

She said, "We are here, on the one hand, to help women become self-sufficient and to educate our youth. On the other hand, we want to show the world another side of the Palestinian people and allow them to experience Palestine's authentic history and culture."

Inaash provides for the livelihood to just 450 Palestinian women, and according to the United Nations Relief and Work Agency's latest statistics the number of registered refugees in Lebanon is over 410,000.

Thus, insiders said that the organization is working hard to expand its reaches and spread its word to support Palestinian refugees.
