A personal story update by Shameela Islam-Zulfiqar

I am back at the Turkey Syria Border this week. I was at the factory earlier this afternoon where we are sourcing the components of the Winter packs for preparation for distribution inside Syria. The items are sourced, manufactured and packaged by Syrian refugees to help them earn a sustainable income and achieve some stability.

I also tried my dab hand at hemming some of the abayas that are part of the pack, helped by one of the Syrian sisters! They are so full of dignity and determination to get on with their lives as best as they can despite the crazy situation they’ve escaped from.

Please continue to support this project and help resolve at least some of the difficulties Syrian refugees face.

Thank you and JazakAllah Khairun to all of you who have supported, donated and contributed towards the Winter Campaign so far!
