We’ve moved!

Some of our experts joined us last month at the new offices of Al Marji’ Publications. Experts toured the premises, enjoyed yummy snacks by Banan Gharaibeh, and updated one another on their latest ventures and future contributions to readers of Family Flavours and Nakahat ‘Ailiyeh magazines.

Our Partners in Media

Hayat FM last month signed a cooperation agreement with Al Marji’ Publications, publisher of Family Flavours and Nakahat ‘Ailiyeh parenting magazines, for the fifth consecutive year.

This corporation agreement, signed by Musa Saket, Founder and Chairperson of Hayat FM radio station, and Hind-Lara Mango, Publisher and Managing Director at Al Marji’ Publications, stems from the shared aim of raising awareness about family values and parenting through expert contributions.

During the signing, Saket expressed his happiness for this sustainable partnership with Al Marji’ publications “which helps serve the family, the core and pillar of society.” He added that “Hayat FM considers this partnership an effective way to reach families because these magazines focus on the family and community.”

Mango added that “through this partnership between Family Flavours, Nakahat ‘Ailiyeh and Hayat FM, we can reach an even larger number of families and caregivers with information to support them to grow and develop in a healthy, happy and loving environment”.
