On Friday the 1st of June we hosted a fundraising iftar to support Iqraa School in the Western suburbs of the Aleppo province, Syria. This school is funded by Manchester Community and implemented in collaboration with Syria Relief Charity. The school opened its doors for Syrian children in September 2014 and it accommodated about 500 students in 2015.
The charity iftar was a real success with more than £40,000 pledges for the next academic year. The total budget of the academic year is between £60,000 and £70,000 and Rethink Rebuild Society will continue the efforts with the support of the Syrian community to secure this amount during this year.
