The Rotary clubs invited beneficiaries from five charity societies to participate in the activities: Bahrain Paralympic Committee, Dreams Society, Al Kawther Society for Social Care, Janusan Charity Society, and Tree of Life Society all attended the event.
The participants enjoyed traditional activities such as henna painting and a frasah (traditional horse) and the MC Ali Yaseen organized a competition with prizes for the winners. The aim is to organize an inclusive event where everyone from diverse backgrounds, economic background, and different abilities can all share in the joy of Gergaoon.
