Hamam Khairy Concert, Paris
19 September 2014
On 19 September 2014, UNHCR, together with the Association d’Amitié France Syrie and Association médicale franco-syrienne, organized a fundraising concert in Paris. Aleppo singer Hamam Khairy, together with 20 musicians formed the band Takht Attourah and showed the inspiring and generous side of Syrian hospitality.
While both beautiful and uplifting, the performance also reminded guests that behind the statistics declaring 1.5 million refugee children, lie as many broken lives.
The Gulbenkian foundation in Paris generously hosted the sold out concert, which had over 150 people in attendance.
