Edinburgh Direct Aid: 6 years with the Syrian refugees of Arsal, Lebanon. Monday 1st April 2019

Edinburgh Direct Aid helps where it can when there are man-made or natural disasters. On Monday 1st April, at 7.30pm, Ann Thanisch will be describing to The Monday Group Edinburgh Direct Aid’s work for Syrian refugees since 2013 in the exceptionally harsh conditions of Arsal, Lebanon – providing supplies donated by the UK public, school education, vocational training, workshops, health classes & a gym. There will be a particular focus on current priorities – the impact of the bad weather in early 2019, and a day centre for refugee children with special needs, which Ann visited last year. 

Edinburgh Direct Aid has just launched an urgent appeal for funds to help refugees with inadequate shelter in severe winter storms in north Lebanon.

All are very welcome to this open meeting being held in the West Meeting Room. (£1) Refreshments follow the talk. For more information, contact: liz Philp: administration@stpetersedinburgh.org
