After thirty three years of being away from our beloved Shweir, here comes one of its very noble son of Shweir who came from a family of 11 children. His name is Sakha John Mjaes came to give back to his lovely town a name in the Guinness world record book two exceptional prizes. Sakha deserves a great applaud and command for his outstanding achievement and dedication in planning this great historical event as recognized by the Lebanese ministery of Tourism. A day like no other day, a day of a kind in the Middle Eastern History, in this day Sakha is making history. He is committed to fight drugs, smoking and reckless driving. He is so driven that he dedicated a historical day in the Expatriot holiday to fight these human fallacies. An astounding day that took organizing and serious planning for over four month. Sakha Mjaes gathered people from all over Lebanon to come and show support for these great causes.

This marvellous day is sponsored by A+ organizations such as: Aksys Capital, the noble mayor of Shweir and Ain Sindyaneh Mr. Elias Bu saab, and Khoury Dairy Products.

I would like to send my hearfelt thanks to Mr. Sakha Mjaes for his outstanding leadership, exceptional creativity and endless dedication to his noble village Shweir and his beloved country men and women.

I would greatly appreciate it if Shweir.com recognizes this great cader among our people, and encourage other to follow his great footsteps.

Hello Hana

So good to hear from you and I want thank you for bringing this issue to our attention, I will share it with the Shwier.com family.  

Indeed, Sakhaa who spent most of his life in Canada never ever lost the love for his birth place.  Although Sakhaa is my cousin, I did not get to know him until the two last summers when I visited Dhour.  He is the son of my late uncle Jean Salameh Moujaes a true Shweiry who raised and left behind a great family with deep roots that always pulled them back from where ever they are to where they belong…Shweir.

I am so proud of my cousin Sakhaa, and hope that the message of this event becomes a reality.  Organizing something like that is huge, just check all the activities on the attached poster just tremendous, Music, dance, free food, free shirts for the first 5,000 attendees, Harley Davidson parade, and two activities to put Shweir in the Guinness World record, well who can top that?  I Salute him and all the sponsors who understand the message behind the event.

If you can help in any way, see the tel number on the poster or you can email Sakhaa at james_yacoub@hotmail.com and show him your support on this up coming historic event       

Go Sakhaa

George E. Matar, P.E.

Dear Hana and Cousin George,

Blessed are those that can give without remembering and receive without forgetting

In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.

On behalf of John & Mountaha Mjaes Children’s I dedicate this event to every shoeiri across the world.

And know this that the best of me is yet to come.

Sincerely Yours

Sakha John Moujaes
Event Project Manager
