Voices From Syria at Blackpool Speakeasy

We were invited to present 'Voices From Syria' to Blackpool Speakeasy on 8th February, 2017. It was a great evening and the audience was moved to tears listening to the experiences of Dr Haytham Alhamwi in the Syrian conflict. Here is what the organiser had to say about the event:


Talk at Bridgewater High School

We were invited on the 31st of January 2017 to give a talk with CARE UK about Syria and how to practically help, to young people at Bridgewater High School in Appleton. The young students found the talk very informative with many expressing their support and sympathy for the plight of Syrians. Thank you to Bridgewater High School for inviting us.
