AUK's Hope Club Host 'Yom Al Ard'

The Hope Club of AUK hosted an event titled 'Yom Al Ard' on March 31st, this day was held with respect to the official 'Land Day' celebrated every year throughout the world.

The event took place at AUK's Auditorium where many members of the AUK family performed a live version of the Palestinian National Anthem. Hope Club member Rand Abd- Hamid then introduced Aminah Eida to the stage who gave a moving speech as to what exactly the term Palestine meant to her and also talked about how and when Youm Al Ard began.

Following Aminah speech, a film was screened titled, "What is Land" which was created and filmed by AUK's Film Club. This film offered the points of views of many members of the AUK community as well as a short film which allowed the audience a brief glimpse into the troubles that many Palestinians suffer on a daily basis.

Hope Club President, Mohammad Abu Mazzen gave a speech about the purpose of such an event and why Palestine was such an important topic for the Hope Club. Another short film was then screened to show the audience just what life was like for many Palestinians. The event concluded with a performance of a traditional Palestinian Dabkeh by Lujain AbuZaid, Mohammad Abu Mazzen, Maen Aweis, Njoud Awies, Lamees Njem, Sara Arnaout, Aseel Al-Abed, Ismail Abu- Abdo and Dina Saoud, which had the crowd cheering and on their feet.
