The Arab Brothers Meeting Festival for Hobbies and Crafts was launched, in its 18th edition, amid a remarkable presence of innovators, artists, and artisans. The three-day festival, which was held on Baghdad Central Station, was interspersed with Dabka dance and concerts. Moreover, the festival celebrates Iraqi rich heritage by various means as it offered an unparalleled opportunity for youths and the elderly to showcase their talents and skills. Among those avid participants was Alaa Mohammad, a girl with special needs, who excels in drawing Arab and international celebrities. Through these spectacular drawings, she demonstrated that her will to live is greater than her disability.
