Haawiyat Reaches Turkey

Our partners at NuDay Syria have generously provided us with images of the kids receiving and reading their copies of Haawiyat. Says one of our contacts there, “The kids were super excited to read over the stories, and in some cases distracted me from photographing since they were eager to read to me!”

Haawiyat Heads Overseas!

At their Sunday, April 9th container sorting and packing event, NuDay Syria was given nearly 400 copies of the all-volunteer inaugural edition of Haawiyat to take overseas. A. David Lewis and Nadia Alawa were on site for the hand-off of the materials.

Now, as work begins on a longer, revised edition, these initial books — printed for free by Ka-Blam Digital Publishing — will make their way to children at refugee camps in Turkey and along the Syrian border. Watch for updates here!
