Over 100,000 people so far died in Syria since the beginning of the conflict in 2011- and 1.6m have fled the country searching for peace and shelter in neighbouring Lebanon and Jordan. Behind the numbers and statistics, there is immeasurable suffering and injustice; but also a lot of resilience and hope for a different future, a future with peace and prosperity.
Aid workers from Human Appeal International, Oxfam and Syria Relief, who work closely with Syrian refugees are coming together at IWM North to attempt to explain the situation behind the numbers and the headlines- and to tell the stories of those worse affected by the conflict.
The evening will also feature an exclusive preview of photographs by Matthew Norman, who has just returned from a trip to Syria with Syria Relief.
