Amman, April 25 (Petra) - Jordanian, Syrian, and Swiss musicians held a musical concert at the Landmark Amman Hotels on Wednesday evening in support of the World Food Program (WFP) in cooperation with the hotel and Orange Red, a music and cultural event management company set up in 2004.
The concert, which saw the participation of Jordanian artists Yarub Sumeirat, Ouda Odeh, Syrian Ibrahim Kivu and Hannibal Sa'ad, Narej Ababjian, as well as a Swiss band composed of nine musicians, was inspired by musical traditions in the Levant, the Balkans and northern Africa.
In remarks made at the opening ceremony, The Landmark Amman Hotels company founder, Mary Nazzal Batayneh, said the hotel signed a cooperation agreement with the United Nations World Food Program in 2012, emanating from its belief in its cause in fighting hunger.
" We chose to continue to support the WFP in the pursuit to reach the zero hunger status," Batayneh pointed out.
WFP supports Syrian and Jordanian families through food assistance, as over 400 thousand school meals are served daily to beneficiaries.
