We will never despair!

Despite the bleak news that we continue to receive from Syria, it gives us hope to see that the Syrian spirit is still alive and well. We participated in the London demonstration on 12 March marking the fifth anniversary of the Syrian uprising, standing side by side with Syrians and supporters from across the country.

We were also very honoured to host Syrian communities from across the UK on 10 April for our annual indoor family fun day. The British Syrian community has grown tremendously in the past year, and we were happy to welcome all of them, old and new, and hope that together we can continue to raise the voice of the Syrian people in this country. We hope that you will all continue to engage with us as we continue to amplify the Syrian voice.

Best regards,

Dr. Haytham Alhamwi
