The Spanish embassy hosted a fundraising gala at Serena Hotel for the Kaghan Memorial Trust, an organisation providing quality education free of cost to disadvantaged children from the Kaghan Valley.

The embassy had invited Alba Heredia, internationally acclaimed Flamenco dancer, who mesmerised the audience with her expressive performance.

Ambassador of Spain Manuel Duran Gilmour Rico said: “The gala in Islamabad is a showcase of how performing arts can help promote and support the most valuable causes.

“This fundraising event is our contribution, together with the Serena Hotels, to support education initiatives in favour of those in need, such as the impressive work of the Kaghan Memorial Trust in providing quality education to underprivileged children.”

Aziz Boolani, CEO of Serena Hotels, said: “We are delighted to welcome the Flamenco performer to Pakistan. Serena Hotels is privileged to be able to host events

that strengthen the cultural exchange between Pakistan and Spain while at the same time supporting a cause dear to our hearts — providing quality education to the less fortunate.”

Director of Kaghan Memorial Trust Khurram Khan thanked the Embassy of Spain and Serena Hotels for their support.
