Charity Events

HRH Princess Haya of Jordan and Nicoletta Pavarotti have invited 75 couples to attend this memorable weekend. These guests will be making a donation to the following 3 charities:

The UNHCR-WFP Pavarotti Tribute Project for Afghan Refugees

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) will use funds raised from the Pavarotti tribute charity concert to help returnees in Afghanistan to rebuild their lives, particularly in the eastern parts of the country where the largest numbers of returnees are coming from neighbouring Pakistan.

The 12-month, Euro 4 million-project, will begin in January 2009 and will target approximately 150,000 Afghan returnees (25,000 families). The project will focus specifically on vulnerable families and at-risk individuals, such as women and children, in addition to those communities who are struggling to cope with the harsh impact of the high food prices.

The work of the two UN agencies will take the form of a number of small-scale projects geared to help returnees improve their quality of life in a sustainable way. Projects will focus on community-based activities, including the construction of shelters and kindergarten schools and the rehabilitation of community infrastructure. Additionally, there will be vocational skills and literacy training, human rights awareness education, and agricultural training for vulnerable farmers.

UNHCR will provide shelter, including essential construction materials along with technical assistance, and an initial reintegration package. WFP will provide food assistance to returnees and host communities to address immediate food insecurity, as well as helping communities find employment and sources of income.
