On the 28th of June, Rethink Rebuild Society attended a roundtable discussion held by The UK Department for International Development (DFID) with NGOs working on the humanitarian response and on advocacy for Syria. This was the third meeting of its kind with DFID, with the first held back in November 2017.
On the 26th of June, Rethink Rebuild Society joined a number of Syrian civil society organisations in addressing a letter to the UN Secretary General, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, and the President of the Human Rights Council to situate Syrian detainees among those remembered during the International Day in Support of Victims of Torture.
On Sunday 24th June, Rethink Rebuild Society hosted a free screening of the documentary “Lost in Lebanon”, directed by Georgia and Sophia Scott. We were proud to see our hall full of guests. The documentary was insightful, allowing us all to reflect on the situation many face on the border of Syria.
