Syrians for Peace
Date: Sunday, February 25th 2018 at 5 PM - 9 PM

Address: 397 Kent St, Ottawa, ON K2P 2B1

This event is being organized with the vision to help improve the connections between the Syrian refugee community and mainstream society in Ottawa. As the vast majority of Canadians have welcomed Syrian refugees to the country with open arms and hearts, we wanted to have a way to enable Syrians in Ottawa to give back to the larger community. As a part of this event we are currently running an online auction on our WordPress website https://auction.humanspeace.org.

If you are placing a bid please use the the right side widget auction list to enter your bids as the bidding buttons do not work in the main pages.

100% of the proceeds from “Syrians for Peace” will be donated to:

 

  1. The Canadian Blood Services
  2. Ottawa Inuit Children's Centre

Yes, REFUGEES are HUMANS and can make PEACE.

The event will feature a night of Syrian culture with performances from:

  • Local Syrian band (Arabesque)
  • Children for Peace will perform Syrian dance and songs
  • Dancing group performing traditional Dakbeh
  • Henna
  • Traditional Syrian dishes sale made by Ladies for Peace
  • Art exhibit featuring children’s and youth art with an auction to be held at the end of the event.
