Welcome to the Australian Kfarsghab Association (AKA) website, which was launched on 1st April 2004. We hope and trust that it will be of good service to our Kfarsghab community and friends as a pathway for communication between our members in Australia and abroad.
Kfarsghab is a village located in the Zgharta District in the North Governorate of Lebanon. It is situated in the Valley of Qadisha, which is considered a holy and spiritual place in Eastern Christianity. Kfarsghab is composed of two geographically separated settlements: Kfarsghab, a high mountain village, and Morh Kfarsghab, a plain village, respectively inhabited in summers and in winters.
The Lebanese hailing from Kfarsghab number 20,000 worldwide with 95% of them living outside Lebanon, mainly in Australia and the USA. Kfarsghab’s population is 100% Maronite Catholic.
The AKA is a registered association which exists to provide facilities and organise functions for the promotion and enhancement of social, cultural, sporting, educational and religious activities amongst the Kfarsghab community in Australia and abroad.
