Assalam Alikom

Dear all,
With the end of the summer holiday, Rethink Rebuild Society (RR) extends greetings to all of you and hopes that you have had lovely and worm holidays.
As you are aware, numbers of Syrian refugees in the UK are in daily increase, and this put a big burden on our shoulders to help them and make sure that they find the support they need in this difficult time of their life. We would like to take this opportunity to ask you all to support us in helping them. If you have few hours every week to do voluntary work, please call us to tell you how you can help.

Best regards,
Haytham Alhamwi
