A SERIES of talks the crisis in Syria is to take place at the Christ Church Centre in Henley on Wednesday evenings, starting next week.

The Nettlebed and Greys group of churches, together with Churches Together in Henley, are hosting a number of speakers with first-hand experience of providing aid to the refugee camps as doctors, aid workers, journalists and refugees.

On Wednesday (February 17), the Times’ correspondent Anthony Loyd, who has made many trips to Syria, will talk about what it is like to visit a country in turmoil and how he sees the situation now.

The following week, Syrian doctor Mohammed Mahmalat and Zainab Koroma, of the Red Cross, will talk about getting medical aid into the country and finding homes for the refugees who are to be welcomed to the UK.

On March 9, David Peppiatt, director of the International Division of the Red Cross, will talk about the challenges of putting aid into Syria and the refugee camps in the surrounding countries.



All talks start at 7.30pm. For more information, email admin.benefice@freeuk.co.uk
