Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbi recently held a charity concert in Lebanon and donated all the proceeds to the orphanage Oaksilia. A large crowd of Lebanon’s elite attended the event.
According to the London based Elaph, Haifa shocked everyone present by announcing that she will adopt the children’s case at the orphanage and will do all she can to reunite most of them with their biological mothers and ensure they live a well respected life away from poverty.
It is expected that Haifa will be holding a press conference with the organizers of the orphanage to announce that the proceeds of her concert will go to help children and their families. Haifa also announced that she will begin a huge campaign that aims at helping a large number of mothers care for their children to avoid placing them in orphanages.
On a different note, Haifa was recently in Dubai to take part in the grand opening of international stores Duce and Gabana, after which she headed to Cairo to resume recording of the songs of her upcoming album.
Wahbi was shocked by the disparaging comments made publicly by her younger sister Rola.
Haifa stated, “I cannot understand how a sister can say such mean things about her sister,” fearing it could ruin their relationship, attributing her ruthless campaign to jealousy.
Rola commented to a number of Arabic magazines that she deeply regrets being the younger sister of Haifa, asserting that Haifa abused her physically and verbally as a child, forcing her to file police reports on several occasions.
Rola also claims that Haifa is an extremely jealous person, especially of her peers like Nancy Ajram, Alissa, and Rula Saed, and forbids her family from watching or listening to their music.
Haifa continues to claim Rola is mentally unstable and is under psychiatric care. Haifa said she is disappointed over their relationship, and despite Rola’s comments she hopes her sister recovers from her illness.
