From the Advancement Office

You will recall that arrangements for the previous Gala Dinner (although charitable in its nature) were cancelled in view of the political situation prevailing at the time with regards to our detainees.

Now that the political situation with our detainees has been resolved, the Advancement Office is pleased to inform you that a replacement Gala Dinner for the benefit of the Faculty of Nursing and Health Sciences is being planned for Friday, 24 November 2017.

Tickets can be purchased from Rania Hazboun at USD 100 each.

Your support, in any way you can, will be much appreciated.
