"Music can speak out louder than words. I will use my music and my voice to speak out on behalf of the needy and undernourished everywhere," said Lebanese singer Ms Magida Al Roumi when she was appointed an FAO Ambassador at World Food Day 2001. Ms Al Roumi, an internationally recognized singer of Arabic popular music, has released a series of successful albums and performed on stage all over the world. For several years she has participated in events dedicated to FAO’s fight against hunger, and her commitment to humanitarian causes has won her the respect of audiences, music critics and the media.

In June 2002 Ms Al Roumi -- in her role as an FAO Ambassador -- was the guest of honour at the Arab Children’s Congress held in Amman, Jordan, held under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Noor. This event promoted cross-cultural understanding and acted as a democratic platform for the empowerment of youth in the region. During her presence at the Congress, Ms Al Roumi spoke about her role as an FAO Ambassador and stressed the importance of working with young people to achieve a world free from hunger.

In June 2002, Magida Al Roumi attended the "World Food Summit: Five Years Later" and spoke extensively about her role as FAO Ambassador during a press conference organized on the occasion.

On 16 October 2002, a musical performance by Ms. Magida Al Roumi in the Plenary Hall enlivened of the World Food Day celebrations at FAO Headquarters in Rome.

In October and November 2002, interviews focused on her role as FAO Ambassador were given to LBC and to Al Usra Ai Asriya weekly magazine of Dubai.
