A stream of young models graced the catwalk in Beirut this week, in a bid to raise awareness for the Children’s Cancer Center of Lebanon, The Daily Star Lebanon reported.
From 18-months-old to 14-years-old, all the models were patients at the care center.
The event was held in order to raise funds and awareness for the center which is affiliated with the American University of Beirut’s Medical Center and the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis Tennessee.
The center offers treatments free of charge and depends on donations for its $15 million per year budget.
Advertised under the slogan “fashion is for everyone,” the participants took the catwalk by storm and were received by a cheering audience.
The models were supported by dance acts and also put up artwork for sale.
