A very busy summer!

While for many the summer months have been quiet and restful, we at RR have been busier than ever! We hosted a two-week long Syrian arts festival ‘Celebrating Syria’ in July which was met with immense success and which was attended by many new faces from diverse communities. We hope to do more events celebrating Syrian art and culture in the coming months and years.

We are also picking up our advocacy work – and hiring! – given the resumption of Parliament. We have devoted the second half of August, and will continue for the first half of September, to advocating for Syrian detainees. We hope that you will join us to make our efforts successful.

Wishing you all an Eid Mubarak!

Best regards,

Taha Saadelddin
