Social Gatherings

Saladin Mosque Social Gathering

We hosted an awareness-raising gathering at Saladin mosque in Manchester on Saturday 1st October 2016. The purpose of that gathering was for members of the Syrian community to get to know each other and for the youth to strengthen their ties to the community as well.


Eid Celebration at the Park

We organised a fun day at the park in celebration of Eid al-Adha on 12 September. Approximately 200 Syrians got together at Cringle Park for games, tea, and coffee. It was an opportunity for the community to get together and enjoy the Eid holiday.


Film Screening: Queens of Syria

We screened 'Queens of Syria' on 6 November by director Yasmin Fedda at our office. The movie documented the two-month journey of Syrian refugee women in producing a play in Jordan, as well as the various barriers that they overcame to successfully put on this play.


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.


A Successful 6th Annual Syrian Fun Day!

On Sunday 10th July, we had our 6th annual fun day in Manchester at Levenshulme High School. This was a hugely successful event that bought together over 1600 Syrians from across the UK to connect with their local communities and to celebrate Eid El-Fitr.
