We attended the 'Celebration of Muslim Women's Achievements' on Saturday 5 March which proved to be a lovely evening. This event highlighted some of the many achievements of a diverse group of Muslim women. Syrian women also contributed to this event by highlighting the struggles and the successes of Syrian women despite five years of conflict.
A group of Syrian women met on 24 February to discuss community initiatives that they are planning. They have already started a project to collect clothes for Syria, and another one to help new Syrians integrate into their new communities. This group is now working on building a database of Syrians in Manchester and scoping out the needs of this group.
