Posted on / News and Updates / By LKGCB

2 May 2020, Leuven, Belgium: The Birth Anniversary of Lord Buddha & Peace March was planned in Brussels and Waterloo on 7th May 2020 in joint organization of Lumbini-Kapilvastu Global Campaign, Belgium (LKGCB), Federation of Indigenous Nationalities, Belgium and Non-Resident Nepalese Association, Belgium under the patron-ship of Nepalese Embassy in Belgium.

However, Belgian National Security Council has taken a series of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the country and prohibited major events until 31 August 2020. Therefore, celebration event of 2564th Birth Anniversary of Lord Buddha will not take place on 7th May 2020 in Belgium.

In addition, all remaining annual activities of LKGCB will also be cancelled or postponed to a later date. The 5th General Assembly of LKGCB will be postponed to a later date. From September 2020, we will evaluate the Belgian Government direction to tackle COVID-19 situation and communicate appropriate date to conduct the 5th General Assembly of LKGCB accordingly.

During this difficult time, on behalf of LKGCB, we wish your safety and an effective eradication of COVID-19 pandemic soon as well as love, peace and harmony for the entire world.
