Dear All,

Now we have a real place for our ladies to start working on creating the beautiful crafts. They have clean and creative environment where they can talk, laugh and make small income. 

Thank you all for your support.

Best regards,

Dear all,

I am introducing one of our amazing volunteers in Greece who are going to implement our project in the field.

Nour Shehade is one of our amazing team members in Greece that makes this project possible. Nour is a Palestinian woman from Syria, she used to live in Yarmouk and started to work with displaced women and children in 2012, when she was herself displaced from her home. When she was forced to flee to Lebanon she continued her work with her Syrian and Palestinian refugees. Now in Greece and twice a refugee she decided to use her experience in working with children and women. In her own words "this project is important as many women here are alone with their children and without any income. They have a lot of time and nothing to do but waiting. The workshop will offer them a place to socialise, be together and have an income to support themselves and their families"


Thank you Nour for your amazing work.

With our love,

Dear generous donors,

We have recorded this video for you to meet one of our talented women, Maysa'a, explaining why Embroideries of Hope is very important for her and the team.

Our brilliant team in Greece

The amazing part about our project is that a team of 5 refugees will implement the project in the camp. They are all volunteers and all have previous experience in working with refugee women in camps in Lebanon and Syria. These Palestinian and Syrian youths have managed similar projects in the past. Embroideries of hope was born in dialogue with these volunteers and we are so blessed to have them on our project.

Because of your support we have reached 936 GBP. However, we still need to reach 1500 GBP to receive the money from the university. Please share our project with your friends and family if you think they will be interested. We appreciate your continuous support.

Kind regards,
