Because of the conflicts in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, Europe has received thousands of people coming across in boats, landing in Greece hoping to make their way to more affluent countries in the EU. There are currently 57,000 people in Greece awaiting asylum applications, and they reside in camps with minimal facilities and care.

Zainab Kufaishi is a senior relationship manager at a large financial services firm. She volunteered her time, money and language skills to help at camps for 3 weeks this summer...

Join us at A4 Space on Tuesday October 25th for an exciting opportunity to hear Zainab's story and understand how she helped in the biggest migration crisis Europe has faced since World War II.

The event is free for Ellevate Members while non-members pay AED80 at the door - soft drinks will be offered. Please plan to arrive around 6.30pm for casual networking; Zainab will begin her presentation promptly at 7pm and Q&A will then follow. The venue is capacity-constrained so registration is essential, as is turn-out! Men are welcome to join.

We thank Al Serkal Avenue very much for their generous sponsorship of this event, and very much look forward to sharing Zainab's inspiring human journey with you.
