Singing for Syrians

Last week I was invited along to photograph a fantastic fundraising event for Syrian refugees. Local bilingual children's group, Babel Babies, were sponsoring it and the venue was The Suffolk Anthology Book Shop. Together, with Syrian children’s book author and illustrator - Nadine Kaadan - they hosted an afternoon of storytelling, singing and crafts. It was an event in Arabic, French and English for the Syrian children who have come to live in Gloucestershire. It was a great chance for everyone to practise their Arabic nursery rhymes and hear some beautiful Arabic picture books being read by the author herself! The event was being held in conjunction with Gloucestershire’s refugee support charities GARAS and Cheltenham Welcomes Refugees.
