Sheraton Amman backs mercy walk to aid child


The Sheraton Amman Al Nabil Hotel and Towers in Jordan has backed "mercy walker" Danny Garcia's new effort to help an Iraqi child.

"Nothing is more worthwhile than helping children and trying to ensure they grow up in a peaceful world," says Sheraton general manager Richard Fossett.

Since December 1996, former US Marine Corps veteran, Danny Garcia, has walked over 26,000 kilometres throughout the Middle East, Europe, United States, Asia and Australia to support people in need.

He is back on the road to help Iraqi child Ehab Sabri who is desperately in need of delicate heart surgery.

Garcia, who has touched the lives of the people around the world through his humanitarian missions, started his walk on June 11 accompanied by Ehab and his family.

Garcia is walking from Amman to Cairo through Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Gaza and Rafah.

With the walk, Garcia will also promote the "Say Yes" for children campaign which highlights: say yes to children, say yes to peace and say yes to Garcia.

"Being the main sponsor, Sheraton Amman not only accommodated Garcia, but also raised its voice by saying 'yes' to the children of the world," said Fossett .
