“I was blessed to join the VIP Trip in December 2018. It was an experience I will never forget. Every child I met was smiling despite their losses and the trauma they faced. This alone was a lesson for me, to appreciate what we have and do Shukr. I was unable to hold my tears back when I visited a mother who was looking after her three disabled children all by herself. All she asked for was duas. I was really moved by what I witnessed out there, however, it made me realise how lucky and blessed we are. I recommend everyone to visit and spend time with the Syrian refugees.

Dear friends, after the success of our first VIP trip since Covid restrictions were lifted in September 2022, we are now embarking on our next VIP Drive in January 2023 to help those in dire need this Winter.

We are looking forward to our next trip out with more VIPs and will keep you posted of updates as we get them so that you can join us in making our January trip and fundraiser our biggest and best trip yet!
