Foreign embassies in Jordan held here Friday a charity fair to collect money for disabled children.

The sale, organized by the Al-Hussein Society for the Habilitation and Rehabilitation of the Physically Challenged (AHS),gathered about 44 embassies and clubs.

A member with the AHS said that all the money will go to disabled children.

Founded in 1971, the AHS is an educational, vocational and therapeutic NGO dedicated to providing comprehensive habilitation and rehabilitation services to physically challenged individuals, with the emphasis on children.

Foods and decorations for Christmas dominated this year's fair as the holiday is less than one week away.

Staff with Spain kept sending a pile of packet boxes out every hour. "People like these, maybe because Christmas comes. They need to prepare some gifts," said a staff member who was busy with customers.

"This is a shopping frenzy, a big party," said a lady with Swiss stall. Swiss chocolates are so welcomed that almost all of them have been sold out by noon.

The fair was embraced by the public with great passion. People still flooded in the afternoon in the Royal Hotel where the fair was held.

"I really enjoyed the sale, as I can buy all kinds of exotic things without going out of Jordan and give a little help for those disabled," said a man who only named as Nasser, while carrying his little daughter on his neck.
