Too many Syrian families face yet another difficult time this Christmas.  Syria’s on-going war compounded by the Covid -19 pandemic has forced so many to live apart.  Here in Britain two organisations have decided to work together to create

• A heart- warming ‘soundscape’ of voices
Families chatting away together over the phone from Britain to Syria, Beirut, Canada and the rest of world, some animated, curated by Family Talk

• An intimate collation of pictures 
A beautiful montage of personal family photos shared by participants, photographers and prestigious artists, curated by Litehouse Gallery
