Shine for Syria This Autumn!

Muslim Hands
Shine for Syria This Autumn!

Six years since the start of conflict in Syria, over half the country’s population has been left in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. Hospitals, schools and bakeries have been destroyed by heavy bombing and violence, hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and millions more have been forced to flee their homes.

Thanks to your generous support, last year Muslim Hands distributed winter relief kits to destitute Syrian families living in camps across Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley, helping to provide fuel, food parcels, blankets and jackets. This autumn, men, women and children across refugee camps in Lebanon still urgently need your hellp to face the coming winter months.

So, this year we’re calling on you to join us for our second Shine for Syria sponsored five-mile night walk as we come together to sparkle, shine and light up the night with love at the iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic park in London, for Syrian refugee families living in camps across both Lebanon and Turkey.

There’ll be lots of entertainment including nasheeds, football freestyling and face painting, and you’ll even get FREE hot drinks and a warm meal to end the night.

Register now and sparkle, shine and light up the night with love for Syrian families who’ve already lost so much.

Date: 28th October 2017
Venue: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London, E20 2ST
