THANK YOU THURSDAY!!
This Thank You Thursday, Al Madad Foundation would like to say a huge thank you to our 'Single Speed Squadron', made up of Tom, Jamie, Rob and Will, for their incredible efforts in raising money for Cycle4Schooling, our first ever challenge event raising funds for our Aleppo education projects! They're raising the bar and taking on the challenge on single speed bikes, and have so far raised a grand total of £833!! We're super impressed by their courage, and are certain that their hard work will pay off!
You can show your support by donating to the team here! All sponsorship will go directly towards helping Syria's internally displaced children to get back into education! To find out more about our projects, check out our latest report!
AL MADAD FOUNDATION RELIEF GALA DINNER
Our Syria Relief Gala Dinner is set to be an incredible evening of exclusive Arab themed entertainment, raising funds for our education projects with Syrian refugee children living in both Syria and Lebanon.
We are excited to announce the presence of notable American diplomat, author and writer Chas Freeman, Jr., who has held posts as the former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defense, ambassador to Saudi Arabia, acting Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, and Chargé d'affaires at both Bangkok and Beijing.
An expert on the region, Ambassador Freeman will deliver an insightful talk about the current situation across the Levant, providing a powerful insight into the difficulties faced daily by Syrian families and, in particular, Syrian children. We are honoured to have him at our event, and look forward to sharing this evening with our esteemed guests.

CYCLE4SCHOOLING - 5 WEEKS TO GO!!
Cycle4Schooling is now just 5 weeks away and we can't wait to saddle up and pedal our way to Oxford in aid of children's education in Syria!
It's still not too late to sign up - we need as many participants as we can get to make this an event to remember! So if you fancy challenging yourself, or know anyone else who might be keen to take part, get in touch! Why not get your friends together and make this a group event! The more the merrier!
Sign up today and help us get Syria's children back into the classroom!
We've recently returned from a fantastic trip to Lebanon where we went to check out the progress being made on the ground with our local partners! The outcomes were incredibly positive, with more and more children being reached every single day and benefitting from being back at school! Having missed out on education for such a long time, they told us how happy they were to be back in the classroom, engaging with peers and learning in a structured way.
They had a great time expressing themselves in art workshops, working together to create some beautiful paintings which colourfully depict learning and togetherness.
