Description

UPDATE:

Thank you for your interest in attending our discussion with the White Helmets in Winnipeg.

Given the deteriorating situation in Aleppo over the past 48 hours, our panellists, Raed Saleh & Farouq Habib from Syrian Civil Defence (the White Helmets), have made the understandable decision to return to the region to offer support to their colleagues on the ground. They will leave Canada following Friday evening’s discussion in Toronto.

This means planned screenings and discussions with the White Helmets in Winnipeg and Vancouver have been cancelled.


The British Consulate-General and Global Affairs Canada invite you to a special screening of the documentary The White Helmets, followed by a panel discussion with senior members from Syria Civil Defence, known as the White Helmets, and Mayday Rescue – the primary implementing partner of Syria Civil Defence.

About the White Helmets

Syria Civil Defence is a group of nearly 3000 volunteers who work to save lives and strengthen communities in Syria. Global Affairs Canada and the UK Government, a leading international supporter of the White Helmets, are proud co-sponsors of this special event.

À propos des Casques blancs
