  • Al Hussein Society  Bazaar

     Under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prince Raad Bin Zaid, the Annual Charity Bazaar of  Al Hussein Society  was organized on 15th December 2007. His Royal Highness, accompanied by his spouse Princess Majda, inaugurated this event at Le Royal Hotel in Amman.

    More than 50 diplomatic missions as well  clubs for foreign ladies participated in the event. Being there, they  provided substantial support  to Al Hussein Society which  has been running its humanitarian activities in Jordan since 1971. The main task of the Society is the rehabilitation of handicapped children by physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, educational activities, psychological and social consulting and providing necessary care after orthopedic surgeries. Al Hussein Society, in cooperation with some international non-governmental organizations, is providing special physiotherapy and educational programs for more than 1000 children mainly from  Palestinian refugees camps and remote rural areas. Proceeds of the annual charity event cover the needs of physically challenged children remaining under Al Hussein Society care.

     In an interview with the Jordan News Agency Petra HRH Prince Raad said that Al Hussein Society has an  excellent standing among other international organizations of this sort. Prince Raad expressed his hope that the Society would get enough  financial support in order to acquire a broad  recognition from the people in the country.

    Annual Bazaar of Al-Hussein Society created a good opportunity  for many of its participants to offer a variety of their national products and cuisine specialties. Over 70 arranged stalls were representing different countries which have their diplomatic missions in Amman. They offered products such as cakes, traditional food,  folkloric souvenirs typical for the culture of each country, as well as Christmas decorations.

     At the Polish stall handmade  products were available,  supplied by members of the Polish Ladies Club, such as Christmas angels, table covers, folkloric pictures ands crystal souvenirs.  Many Bazaar buyers were looking there for delicious sweets from the renowned Polish producers Solidarność and Wedel, as well as  for homemade  gingerbreads and other Christmas cakes.

    The revenue from the sales at  Polish Embassy's stall amounted  270 JD. It has been  transferred to the account of Al Hussein Society.

    The Polish Embassy in Amman expresses the  warmest thanks to all volunteers from the Polish community whose efforts  contributed to our first and successful participation of in this charity event.
