What caused this civil war?
With so many in need of humanitarian aid, how can I make a difference?
Answer these questions and raise funds for ShelterBox, a UK charity which is making a difference to refugees all over the world. Keynote speaker will be Dr. Omar Imady of St. Andrew’s University’s Centre for Syrian Studies on the context of the crisis in Syria over the past 10 years. As an expert in the field he draws from both his extensive research and life-experience.
Following Dr. Imady’s lecture there will be a presentation by Alice Jefferson a ShelterBox Operational Co-ordinator who has recently returned from Northern Iraq and has previously been to Lebanon working with refugees. She will speak on the efforts of the ShelterBox organization and how we can help them make a difference.
