Today Tuesday November 29 2016 at 7:30pm the Syrian American Medical Society Foundation (SAMS) will hold “…And He Will Be Our Brother” – a jazz concert to benefit with the aim of raising funds that will help SAMS to continue their work of providing medical care, supplies and training to doctors in Syrian conflict zones, as well as to lead projects that will strengthen and protect hospitals from future attacks. Musicians playing include Edmar Castañeda, Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts, Kevin Hays, Gregoire Maret, John Ellis, Matt Clohesy, Magos Herrera, Vitor Gonçalves, Rogerio Boccato and the Asaran Earth Trio. The concert’s title (“…And He Will Be Our Brother”) was inspired by a letter of a 6-year old American boy to President Barack Obama. In the letter, the little boy asked to welcome Omran Daqneesh, the 5-year-old Syrian boy from Aleppo- whose image sitting in an ambulance covered in blood and dust shocked the world- into his home in the U.S. “We will give him a family, and he will be our brother”, he said. The Internet Society New York Chapter will sponsor the live webcast of this event on the Internet Society Livestream Channel.
