Welcome to our new General Manager!

Please join me in welcoming Mr. Taha Saadelddin as the new General Manager for Rethink Rebuild Society starting from today, the 31st of October. We wish Taha every success in his new role and hope that RR will continue to flourish under his leadership. I will remain with our strong RR team as the Advocacy coordinator, therefore becoming more specialised in this aspect of our work. I would like to thank the Manchester community for their unwavering support over the past five years and hope that you will continue to provide the same support and more to Taha.

On the political scene, an emergency Parliamentary debate on Syria on 11 October saw renewed focus on civilian protection, largely a result of the devastating news emerging from Aleppo. We will be following up these developments with a heavy campaign for civilian protection and we hope that you will all join us.

Best regards,

Dr. Haytham Alhamwi
