AMMAN — The Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) will start holding a number of entertainment activities in Amman next week as part of its “Ummuna Amman” (Our mother is Amman) campaign. 

The annual programme will be held for the third consecutive year as part of GAM's campaign, launched with the aim of strengthening the bond between the residents of Amman with their city  to encourage positive attitudes towards the capital and its facilities, according to GAM's Communication Executive Director Ibrahim Hashem. 

"This year's programme is unique because it is held as part of the Kingdom's celebrations of the Great Arab Revolt. The activities will be held in several parts of the capital every Thursday and Friday," he told The Jordan Times over the phone on Monday, adding that the opening ceremony will be held at the Roman Theatre on Saturday at 5pm. 

The programme will include a wide range of activities that target children, a free medical day, plays, traditional dances, international book day and Islamic songs. 


GAM also launched the initiative to promote the capital as a motherly icon in the eyes of its residents.
