The Syrian conflict has been unrelenting every day for nearly seven years with over half a million-people killed, and millions more displaced or forced to flee. Yet in the depths of the despair; tales of hope, strength and creative power have emerged from the tragedies of war.
Every day, our staff on the ground bear witness to the resilience and determination of the Syrian people to overcome their struggles. Over the past seven years, through the support of our valued donors, we have been able to provide life-changing services and give real hope to Syrians in crisis. For this, we cannot express our gratitude enough.
To commemorate the plight of those suffering, as well as to celebrate our achievements as a key humanitarian aid agency, Syria Relief would be honoured to invite our friends and supporters to our annual charity dinner in London, Melodies from the Middle East.
