More than 350 people attended the Peace One Day event at the Muharraq Club, where two Giant Peace Doves were flown by children from various schools, as well as special education institutions. During the celebration, students performed dances, songs, poetry and mini-plays on the theme of Peace. Prayer flags were displayed on the fences surrounding the club and inside the prayer hall.
