Every year Sanabel hosts a Gala Dinner, which is an occasion for conference participants to meet and network within a casual atmosphere that offers delicious ethnic food and local entertainment.
This year’s Gala Dinner was hosted by the CHF International, an international development organization that has been working in conflict-affected, post-disaster and developing countries since 1952. CHF International currently undertakes development work in partnership with local communities in over 25 countries around the world empowering them to improve their lives and livelihoods for a better future. CHF International's mission is to be a catalyst for long-lasting positive change in low- and moderate-income communities around the world, helping them improve their social, economic and environmental conditions.
CHF International’s core guiding principle is that the people best suited to decide a community’s needs are the people of the community itself. They have expertise in: Economic Development, Micro, Middle Market and Housing Finance, Global Health, Housing and Infrastructure, Urban Development, Governance and Civil Society, Emergency Response and Recovery. CHF International is currently operating in a number of Arab countries in the region; namely, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, and Yemen.
The Gala Dinner was held at Reem Al Bawadi restaurant on the evening of the second day of the conference, Wednesday June 8th. In addition to the cultural activities (Jordanian traditional music and dancing and henna painting), the seated dinner included some of the famous and delicious Jordanian appetizers and dishes. Overall the night offered a unique relaxed setting for networking and entertainment!
