AMMAN — US Ambassador to Jordan Stuart E. Jones joined more than 100 young volunteers for a tree planting community service project in Wadi Qatar earlier this week, according to an AMIDEAST statement.

The event marked the launch of the “10,000 Trees Campaign” in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Youth Exchange and Study (YES) programme, which is administered by AMIDEAST.

The eco-friendly project involved YES alumni, their friends and members of the local community.
