About This Campaign
Experience authentic Syrian culture and traditions in this unique show with a classic live action play, a singing performance, delicious Syrian food, and an exciting dance of swords and shields. Written and performed by Syrian newcomers and students, this event will provide you with the best and most authentic experience of Syrian culture!
In appreciation to the Canadian communities that have accepted and supported Syrian newcomers, we are raising money to donate to the Habitat for Humanity foundation, which will support their mission of providing affordable homes to low-income working families.

Campaign to Support Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia
Through volunteer labour, efficient management, sponsor funding and donations of money and materials, Habitat for Humanity builds safe, decent and affordable houses with the help of the homeowner (partner) families. Habitat houses are sold to partner families at no profit and are financed with affordable, no-interest mortgages held by Habitat Nova Scotia.Homes are built in communities where land availability allows either through donation or discounted purchase.Habitat for Humanity is a hand up, not a hand out. In addition to mortgage payments, each homeowner invests hundreds of hours of their own labour, called “sweat equity”, into the building of their home and the homes of others.
