The plight of Syrian refugees in Reyhanli, Turkey is that they are in desperate need of an education. The Al Salam School is trying to educate over 1,200 children ages 6-15. IDRF have partnered with the Al Salam school and are happy to announce that on Sunday May 8th, they are having a Fundraising Dinner in Halifax, Nova Scotia to bring awareness and support to this great cause.

IDRF, with the help of the Al Salam School in Reyhanli, Turkey, would like your help to continue to empower and educate these children so they can have a better life and give meaning to the next generation of Syrians. The school is in need for more accommodations with the growing number of Syrian refugees.

So please join us and bring awareness to this great cause.
