The concert was organized by the Tunisian Youth Foundation and the Tunisian media acclaimed her extraordinary performance.
Haifa expressed her gratitude for the recognition she received for her performance and said she did not expect such a large crowd to attend. She thanked everyone for showing support for her and her country.
Haifa donated a large sum of money toward the reconstruction of south Lebanon, which sustained the most destruction, caused the Israelis. A large portion of the money was allotted to Mahrouna, the singer’s hometown.
Haifa has also promised to support a number of families that have lost their homes and will provide temporary shelters.
On a different note, Egyptian Parliament member Radi, from the Islamists party, has withdrawn his request that Egypt ban both Lebanese singers Haifa and Nancy Ajram from holding performances in Egypt.
Radi first submitted his request due to his party’s disapproval of the singers’ seductive attire, claiming it may provoke inappropriate thoughts and behavior.
The Islamist party changed its position after the patriotism both stars exhibited by refusing to perform or engage in any entertainment activities while their country was under attack by Israel. Radi stated that he considered the decision of Nancy and Haifa to be a noble one that reflects their true character, reported the London based daily, Al Sharq Al Awsat.
Haifa welcomed the decision not to ban her and Nancy, and thanked Radi for showing consideration and understanding of the message she and her colleagues are trying to convey in support of Lebanon.
