High Tea with Book Discussion

FAWCOJan bookJoin us for High Tea, a brief update on FAWCO and the Target Project, and an engaging book discussion.

"Adrift in a frigid sea, no land in sight—just debris from the ship's wreckage and floating corpses all around—nineteen-year-old Doaa Al Zamel floats with a small inflatable water ring around her waist and clutches two children, barely toddlers, to her body." 

Ahead of this special afternoon, please read this true story: A Hope More Powerful Than The Sea by Melissa Fleming. But even if you are too rushed right after the holidays and can't read it, come anyway. High Tea is always enjoyable and the book is very interesting/extremely relevant. You won't want to miss this discussion.

Register now and feel good knowing 100% of your participation fee supports the Target Project, helping women and girl refugees in Jordan.

Date: Tuesday, January 16, 14.00 – 16.30
Cost: CHF 10
Deadline: Thursday, January 12
