We visited a Year 8 classroom at the All Hallows Catholic College on 14 November to deliver a presentation on Syria and the refugee crisis. The students were extremely interested to hear about what was happening in Syria and were full of questions on why our Government has not been doing more to help the situation.
As part of the Journeys Festival, we facilitated the 'Conversation Corner' event on 08 October. Through this event we led a discussion with John Tomlinson and Emily Ntshangase-Wood from the play production 'Tanja'. This play is about a woman who is detained in Yarl's Wood detention centre and describes the situation of asylum seekers who are detained indefinitely.
We were delighted to take part in a panel in an event in European Parliament on 29 September titled 'Muslims in Europe: Untold Success Stories'. The event was hosted by Afzal Khan MEP and our contribution pertained to the positive roles that Syrian refugees have played within European society. A warm thank you to MEP Afzal Khan for inviting us to take part in this event.
