Children's day in Dubai

Yesterday, I was one of volunteer photographers for the 23 Nisan Children's Day Celebration in Dubai.
This is the 5th year in Dubai. You can read more information about this event from here in English.

23rd Nisan Children's Day is reflection of 23rd April National Sovereignty and Children's Day of Turkey. Turkish women expat group decided to celebrate this day for a good reason in Dubai.
If we consider, April is the month for Autism and 23rd April is dedicated to children, supporting Dubai Autism Center (DAC) perfectly matched with the motto of the day. This year, the event date has to postponed in May due to Easter break.

With this celebrations, the expat group (Sultans of Dubai) has manage to donate more than 600.000 DHS (nearly 165.000 USD) to DAC , In order to support their autism awareness programme.

Yesterday's programme was full with more than 15 different shows. I was at the venue before show, and left very late. At the end of the day, I was so exhausted to post my blog on time for today.
