“It is with great pleasure that I send my heartfelt thanks for your invaluable contribution to the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia’s (ESCWA) Lazem Campaign 2018 to celebrate International Women’s Day.

International Women’s Day provides an opportunity to honor women’s achievements and movements for women’s rights.Through the Lazem Campaign, ESCWA aims to pay tribute to those who have initiated transformative change with a selection of videos of pioneering women from the Arab region. In solidarity with this aim, you and your colleagues at I Heart Film produced, filmed and edited two high quality videos of pioneering women from Bahrain. Not only did you produce excellent videos, but you did so at no cost.

I would like you to know that your contribution to the Lazem Campaign is invaluable. Beyond providing technical expertise and support, you have also confirmed your dedication to women’s rights globally and your commitment to the advancement of women in the Arab region.

I take this opportunity to thank you once again for your participation in ESCWA’S Lazem Campaign, and wish you all the best with your work at I Heart Film.”
