Attendance was great, all the Mauritanian ethnic groups were present, which shows their unity and their interest for the best for the community.
As a reminder, Cincinnati, OH and Northern Kentucky has a big Mauritanian community that consist of hundreds of individuals, and tens of families. The people of the community work in different economic sectors, and their community’s office in the greater Cincinnati area is considered one of the oldest Mauritanian communities’ offices that still exist in the United States. The office was established in 2004.
