Eid Celebration at the Park

We organised a fun day at the park in celebration of Eid al-Adha on 12 September. Approximately 200 Syrians got together at Cringle Park for games, tea, and coffee. It was an opportunity for the community to get together and enjoy the Eid holiday.


Film Screening: Queens of Syria

We screened 'Queens of Syria' on 6 November by director Yasmin Fedda at our office. The movie documented the two-month journey of Syrian refugee women in producing a play in Jordan, as well as the various barriers that they overcame to successfully put on this play.

We attended a dinner organised by the Union of Medical Care and Relief Organisation (USSOM) on 3 September which brought together the Syrian community. That dinner followed their annual meeting held in Manchester during that weekend.
