The Intercultural Dialogue Institute of uOttawa is organizing a panel – “Losing Touch with Humanity in Times of War.”

In 2016, 25,000 Syrian refugees were successfully brought to Canada. However, IDI claims, we mustn’t forget that this fight is over yet and that the war is still raging. Wars such as the one in Syria must not make people forget empathy and mercy.

At the panel, there also will be fundraising for a charity organization, the Peace and Progress International, which is actively working to improve conditions for Syrians in refugee camps.

Confirmed panel speakers:

  • Roman Mukerjee (Intercultural and Interfaith Activist)
  • Bilal Haj-Bakri (Co-Founder of Peace and Progress International uOttawa)
  • Alaa Ah (Eyewitness)
  • Isis Nufouri (Eyewitness)

There will also be screening a special message by Tima Kurdi, the aunt of Aylan Kurdi, the little refugee boy whose tragic death touched people worldwide. Tima is an advocate for keeping the doors open to refugees and is determined to spread her message of planting the seed of hope among people across Canada and overseas.
