Your Royal Highness, Princess Basma Bint Talal, Your Royal Highnesses, Your Excellencies, Dear Friends, Colleagues and Distinguished Guests,
I am privileged to welcome you at this year’s Annual Diplomatic Bazaar. This important event in the social life of Amman is held under the patronage of our esteemed friend Her Royal Highness Princess Basma bint Talal.
For almost 60 years of its activity Mubarrat Um al Hussein Centre has been tasked with an upstanding mission – to take care of the boys who live in extremely difficult conditions. Today this Centre has become a real, warm and united family for many children who continue supporting each other even after leaving Mubarrat Um Al Hussein.
Today it is my honour to speak for the second time on behalf of the diplomatic community which supports the Centre by conveying the proceedings of the Annual Bazaar to the needs of children. This year has become a very special one for many Embassies which celebrated anniversaries since the establishment of diplomatic relations between their respective countries and Jordan. Ukraine also marked the 25th Anniversary of our fruitful cooperation with the Kingdom. I am confident that for many future years diplomatic family in Jordan will continue its valuable support of the Centre’s activities. The multicultural nature of the Bazaar has become a beacon for thousands of visitors who will happily spend their time here today.
Therefore I call upon my colleagues to roll up their sleeves today and try to hit a new record in the history of Bazaar’s charity.
I also want to thank the organizers of this event and helpful staff of Her Royal Highness Office. We invite our guests to visit the pavilions prepared by the diplomatic missions, taste their delicious national food, plunge into their customs and traditions and attend bright international concert.
