In the city of Sulaymaniyah, the "Gasha" high school held a folkloric festival for Kurdish food, clothes and old fashion in order to collect donations from students and guests to help the needy and the sick.


"Every year the annual folklore festival is held with the participation of students from all stages of high school by presenting old Kurdish cuisine, nuts and sweets, and presenting the Kurdish folklore and costumes to provide financial support to charitable centers and hospitals, especially the Hiwa Hospital of cancer and autism hospital and the elderly home as well," the Assistant of the Department of Student Affairs at the "Gasha" school,  Huda Jamal told PUKmedia. 


She added that, "it is a charitable initiative to encourage students to be helpful to others, to develop the spirit of humanity, to do good and to provide their potential to the needy and the sick to be a support for society in the future."


During the festival we met "Tika Delshad" and said, "I am happy to participate in the folklore festival with my colleagues to support people who are in need, wishing the continuation of such annual festivals in all schools so that we can be part of human society."
