Living in a war-torn country directly impacts the lives of the Syrian youth. With overpopulated refugee camps, the lack of youth facilities and the after effects of war have lead to serious psychological implications. It is therefore necessary that Syrian youth have a place to not just express themselves but develop skills.
ONE WISH (Syria) have teamed with COLOURS OF HOPE (South Africa) to build a youth centre in Atma (Syria), which will consist of a common room for relaxation and another for the purpose of a prayer, study and lecture. This centre aims at giving hope to Syrian youth in refugee camps by affording them an opportunity to develop on a social, mental, emotional and spiritual level.
Please assist us to help shape the generations of tomorrow so they can become contributing members of society.
Any amount is welcome. Please donate LILLAAH ONLY to the following account:

#MyRohingya Fundraising Lunch
One common message from every speaker resonated at the #MyRohingya Fundraising Lunch- “We need to do more than just donate”.
Change from within was the message from co-founders of Colours of Hope, Sauda Ismail and Kaashifa Jamal, while advocate Shabnam Mayet of Protect the Rohingya urged the audience to spread awareness and be pro-active in the protests and not be complacent with the current status. “We have failed the Rohingya” was Salaamedia’s Azhar Vadi words. The audience were left in tears with harrowing narratives from Protect the Rohingya’s Zeenat Adam and MSF’s Director of Fundraising, Ludivine Houdet along with moving visuals from both MSF and Salaamedia.
