AWI co-host Syrian Refugee Fundraiser

AWI co-host Syrian Refugee Fundraiser
In Syria, fear and strife have escalated to new heights. Earlier this year, our partner organization Global Aid Network [GAiN] responded to the needs of 3,000 Syrian refugees who fled to Jordan. These needs continue today and, through our partners on the ground, GAiN continue to bring hope to these traumatized, hurting people.

Over 500,000 registered refugees are now living in Jordan, but many live in squalor - either in the refugee camp, or huddled together with up to 12 people in small rooms or makeshift structures.

As a reponse AWI are getting involved by co-hosting a Syrian Cultural Evening in Birmingham city centre on Tuesday the 10th of December from 6:30pm.

Find out more about GAiN's work with Syrians here: ihttp://globalaid.net/initiatives/disaster-response/syrian-refugee-relief/

Although we're primarily inviting Birmingham business people, if you want to get a greater sense of Syrian culture, hear some stories from a recent visit to refugee families on the Syrian border and fancy an Arabic 3 course meal with a glass of wine, do join us.

The event is taking place at the Syriana restaurant, 1 Constitution Hill B19 3LG, Birmingham

The cost is £25. You can acquire tickets from 167 Newhall Street, B'ham or call 0121 7654404.
