Refugee camp

Love Without Borders: A Refugee Art Showcase

Ottawa Global Shapers in coalition with Love Without Borders is organizing a night of art, performances, and food for a good cause.

Love Without Borders empowers traumatized refugees living in refugee camps in Greece, by inspiring them to express their emotions through painting.

These artworks have been exhibited all over US, Europe, and Asia.

The revenues garnered through that night of art will be given back to the refugees  based in refugee camps to fill their immediate and unmet financial needs.

From chocolatier to speaker Tareq Hadhad

Canadian Immigrant - When the Hadhad family arrived in Canada along with thousands of other Syrian refugees, they had one dream; to find peace.

For more than 20 years, the family had run a successful chocolate business in Damascus, but it was destroyed in a bombing in 2012. After fleeing Syria, they spent nearly three years living in a refugee camp in Lebanon before arriving in Canada in December 2015.
