School raise a staggering £40,000 by taking part in Art Exhibition (UK)

The artwork was then auctioned, with funds going to help build and maintain a rehabilitation centre within the Za’atari refugee camp. It is one of the world’s largest refugee camps, and accommodates over 80,000 Syrian refugees among which are many orphans and disabled children.


Four schools have collaborated with an international charity and helped raised over £40,000 to provide education and care to young refugees in Jordan.

The Manchester schools participated in the 99 Names Art Exhibition, hosted by Human Relief Foundation (HRF), an international aid organisation, and its Manchester branch.

Around 400 pieces of art were submitted by the schools and put on display at the 99 Names Art Exhibition, held at the British Muslim Heritage Centre.

The artwork was then auctioned, with funds going to help build and maintain a rehabilitation centre within the Za’atari refugee camp.

It is one of the world’s largest refugee camps, and accommodates over 80,000 Syrian refugees among which are many orphans and disabled children.

Working alongside Jordanian authorities, HRF is to build the centre and provide a space for children with various types of disabilities, providing a suitable place for children and youth with various types of disabilities including physical, sensory and mental impairments.

The four schools taking part in the initiative were: Manchester Islamic High School for Girls, KD Grammar School for Boys, Manchester Muslim Preparatory School and Afifah School.

North West Fundraising Manager at HRF, Sairah Zafar, said, “The 99 Names Art Exhibition was a huge success in every way.
 
"We had a brilliant turn out and a fantastic concept for a heartwarming cause. We would like to thank everyone involved including the four schools we were working in partnership with, our donors, our invited guests and of course our very trusted volunteers.”

The event featured an award ceremony for the best paintings, a bazaar, a fundraiser, live calligraphy, as well as vocal performances by Kamal Uddin, and spoken work poetry by Naveed Ahmed.
