On 7th – 8th May 2014, Save the Children’s emergency team held two community events as part of our Forsa Project alongside our local partner Tadamon Council, which is funded by the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration. The project aims to provide equal opportunities in the areas of education, health and child protection for refugee and vulnerable Egyptian communities. The events, which were held on two evenings at local community spaces in Faysal and Ard El-Lewa, aimed to raise awareness around the services available through the Forsa Project, as well as promote integration between refugees and the local population. Over 650 Syrians, Egyptians, Sudanese, Somalis, Eritreans, amongst other nationalitieis, attended across the two events. Children took part in sports and art activities, while parents were given the opportunity to meet other members of their community and listen to Save the Children and Tadamon Council staff speak about the services on offer.
