The Civil War in Syria left 250,000 people dead and more than four million as refugees, risking their lives every day.
“Wings for Dreams: The human face behind the Syrian refugee crisis” will give these people a chance to share their stories at 6 p.m. Monday in Carter hall. The event is hosted by USI’s Center for International Programs and KESHO, a student organization that seeks to inspire and empower women globally.
The event is a fundraising dinner and there will be presentation followed by Middle Eastern music by Salaam Band.
Alumna Ellen Small Billard, co-founder and executive director of Road to Mafraq, will talk about the Syrian refugee families and the crisis they face daily.
Tickets are $5 for students and $30 for non-students which includes a dinner buffet.
