USSOM Dinner in Manchester

We attended a dinner organised by the Union of Medical Care and Relief Organisation (USSOM) on 3 September which brought together the Syrian community. That dinner followed their annual meeting held in Manchester during that weekend. USSOM talked about their work in Syria, and we also delivered a speech at the dinner about our organisation and our activities.

We enjoyed a day out on the bank holiday Monday of 30 May in York and Bolton Abbey. We departed from Manchester in two buses and went to various destinations within these areas. If was a sunny relaxing and enjoyable day for all members of the family!

We attended Syria Relief's annual dinner on 21 May which provided the community with an update about its work inside Syria and encouraged audience members to continue to support the charity's efforts. The event was well attended and the charity was able to fundraise a record amount.


Artful Children Week 2

Community youth volunteers ran a session of 'Artful Children' on 23 April in which they had children trace and design full-size images of themselves. This six-week programme for Syrian children between the ages of 5 and 10 has been funded by V-inspired and is being organised completely by youth volunteers.
