Rallying hunger away!

Submitted by Ella Carpenter on 2 June, 2006 - 13:32.

By Gihan Ragab
From Oberstaufen to Amman a mixed group of 250 people from Germany, Austria, Jordan, Turkey, Czech Republic, Australia, Italy gathered with a far fetched dream of driving cars with a value of 2000 Euros each!

The challenge became even more worthwhile when the Jordanian National Alliance Against Hunger, World Food Programme and NGO Mount Nebbo organizer Sakhr Al Fayez together with the Oberstaufen Municipality teamed -- after a workshop on raising awareness for German youth-- to support development projects and raise awareness along the route on hunger and poverty.
