May is a great time to honor mothers, and in that spirit, Friends of the Congo, Arena Stage, and DC Arts and Humanities council, are bringing together a Mother’s Day fundraiser at Arena Stage; with a semi-private reception, the special showing of the play of the 2009 Pulitzer prize for drama, RUINED, and followed by a panel discussion about the Women in the Congo.

As a cross-cultural branding and productions company, Afrolehar LLC (AL) has joined forces with the Friends of the Congo and its partners to promote this special mother’s day fundraiser to benefit the Association of Widows of South Kivu and the Congo Restoration organisation; both non-profits are working to provide, including, but not limited to, human development services, capacity-building for reintegration in society, and healthcare for women and children.

Please extend the invitation to your mother, your loved ones, your friends, associates, and members.
