On Saturday 16 April 2022, we organised our annual fundraising Iftaar for Iqraa School (north Syria) at Eastern Pearl Banqueting Hall in Manchester. This school provides vital educational and psychological support to about 500 children in Syria. It has been fully funded by the Syrian community in Manchester and their friends since 2014, and we hope to continue supporting this school for years to come. The fundraising was successful as our friends pledged to continue their support to secure the future of our beloved children in Syria. We wish to sincerely thank all of those who have donated or pledged to donate. We are most grateful for their support.
During the event, we had a presentation about three important types of cancer in the UK that can be diagnosed early by the NHS free screenings: breast cancer, cervical cancer, and bowel cancer. This presentation is part of a project conducted by Rethink Rebuild Society, supported by Answer Cancer with funding from Greater Manchester Health & Social Care Partnership. The presentation was delivered by two of our Answer Cancer champions and was received well by our audience.
