Islington Against Famine: Award for East London Representative

Open to Everyone
Free to Attend

In September, the Somali Community of Islington, together with One True Voice Women’s Organisation and Community Language Support Services, organised an excellent fundraising event for the Disasters Emergency Committee appeal for East Africa. The event featured music by the renowned Somali singer Fuad Omar and other musicians along with speeches from local MP Jeremy Corbyn, the Mayor of Islington Councillor Phil Kelly and Councillor Catherine West. Awards of appreciation were presented to five local Turkish businessmen who donated generously to the appeal, and to our own East London Community Coordinator, Tamer Yigit, for his work in raising awareness and encouraging donations.
