The aim is to raise much-needed funds for disadvantaged students attending Al Quds University to help their lifelong dream of an education come true. The dinner, which is the Committee fifth dinner, will be held on Friday May 16, 2008 at Beach Rotana Hotels & Towers in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
Rim Banna, a well-known Palestinian singer and composer, as well as the respected Bahraini Poet Abdulrahman Rafia, one of the most important poets in the Arab world, will be entertaining the audience during the dinner.
Al Quds University, the only Arab university in Jerusalem, currently faces a major, unprecedented financial and operational crisis brought on by the dire economic, social and political conditions presently prevailing in Palestine. Nevertheless, the University is devoted to providing higher education, with the highest possible standards to thousands of its students, despite of the challenging conditions imposed by the conditions on the ground.
Proceeds generated from this charity dinner will go to the UAE-based Al Quds University Friends’ Committee, which has succeeded in raising funds for around 900 students, since it was established in 2004.
