What is Singing
for Syrians?

Singing for Syrians encourages individuals, bands, choirs, schools and churches across the UK to raise the roof and as much money as possible by holding a singing event as part of a wider initiative. These exciting events are open to everyone, especially children. Singing, music, food and drink are encouraged and we hope the events can be positive and generous at a time when Syrians need our help more than ever.

Who are we
supporting?

Singing for Syrians is part of the Hands Up Foundation which supports partner organisations working in and around Syria.  Where possible the projects are implemented by Syrians in Syria, monitored from the UK. The funding is distributed as wages and aid items to some of the most vulnerable people affected by the crisis.

For more information on the projects we support please visit www.handsupfoundation.org
