MAY 4TH, 2017

Last night (May 3rd, 2017), we had the opportunity to host a screening of the documentary “CRIES from SYRIA ”, along with a discussion panel with the Documentary’s Oscar-nominated Director, Evgeny Afineevsky, along with other activists.

“CRIES from SYRIA is a reality that every human on this planet needs to be aware of,” said our Director, Sikandar H. Khan. He continued, “Many of us, like Mayor Mohamed Khairullah and even myself, have been to conflict zones and have witnessed the devastation that comes with combat, but it is so difficult to explain the impact of that to the general population.”

Khan went on to explain, “The director of Cries from Syria has shed light on the reality through this documentary and I highly encourage everyone to watch it and take action, for the sake of humanity.”

Thank you to our panel members:
– Activist Hamid Imam,
– Senior Officer in Humanitarian Emergencies and Executive Communications for the U.S. Fund for UNICEF Michelle Centeno,
– GERA Advisor and Passaic County Freeholder John Bartlett,
– Prospect Park Mayor and Activist Mohamed T Khairullah,
– Activist Huda Haffar Shanawani, and
Our special guest, the Oscar nominated Director of the documentary, Evgeny Afineevsky.

Also, thank you to the moderator of the night, Activist and Laywer, Nadia Kahn .
Global Emergency Response and Assistance encourages all of our supporters to host a screening of the documentary in your town, county, school, or even within the comfort of your own home. It is a remarkable and well thought out depiction of the Syrian conflict.
