On 23rd March at 08:00 pm an event will be held at Deliceto, Foggia on universal fraternity. The title of this event is “YOUth4Syria” and it will be presented by a young Syrian journalist, Wael Salibe
The Youth for a United World (Y4UW) are working on a worldwide project: United World Project (UWP). This project was launched for the first time at the Genfest, an international event held in Budapest last September. Confronted by the emergency situation in Syria, an idea emerged: to organize concert-performance for the war refugees in that country. The “keyword” that underlies the whole event recalls the very title of the Genfest: “Let’s Bridge”, with the ardent desire to build relationships with all. The organizers of this event are the Youth for a United World and the UNESCO Club “Deliceto nei Monti Dauni”, a member of the Italian Federation of UNESCO Clubs and Centres.
The focal point of the evening will be the meeting with Wael Salibe (a young Syrian journalist) who will primarily share his personal experiences and then pass on to present Syria, ‘then and now’, with the help of audio-visual aids. Wael will speak in Arabic, accompanied by simultaneous translation in Italian. Later, there will be the free contribution of various associations and artistic performances of people who have adhered to the spirit of this initiative. Instrumental tracks, polyphonic songs and poems will be performed in various genres and different styles. There will also be a figurative art exhibition.
Other UNESCO Clubs will also be present for the occasion. The evening will be hosted by the Italian journalist, Samantha Berardino, and it will be broadcasted via streaming through the Facebook page: YOUth4Syria. Everyone is invited to send messages and comment the event. Some of these contributions will be read during the evening. The money raised during this event will be donated to the Syrian refugees through the Association AMU - Actions for a United World, working in Lebanon and Syria.
