RR ran its first workshop for Syrian refugees/new Syrians to Britain under our grant from the 'We Love Manchester' Charity. Today's workshop was on internet skills, and participants learned how to create Gmail, PayPal, and eBay accounts. Stay tuned for our next workshop on 27 May on British culture and the English language!
The Syrian community of Manchester had the good pleasure of meeting with Barbara, Lucy, and Adam Henning (family of the late Alan Henning) for breakfast at the RR office on 16 May. We are very thankful to the Henning family for accepting our invitation and hope that it was just the start of a continued and warm relationship between the family and our community.
