In Desperate Journeys Reem shared powerfully her testimony of fleeing Syria.
As a Syrian refugee who came to the UK from Jordan through being involved in a play called Queens of Syria. During the making of this play Reem met Reham & became close friends.
Reham is Syrian refugee woman in Istanbul. 22 years old & married.
Reham has fled Syria twice. She was sent back to Syria from Jordan where she fled a second time to Istanbul.
She has recently found a large lump (c 5cm) in her breast which the doctor has advised an emergency removal of the lump. Due to a recent cap in refugees in Istanbul Reham is unable to have refugee status & free access to medical assistance. The operation costs around $1000.
EA together with Tonbridge Baptist Church (Desperate Journey sponsor) are looking to raise funds for the operation.
Should money be raised beyond the amount needed EA will use this for other refugee related projects (inc possible ongoing support for Reham) through its Livelihood Development Fund.
