About this Event

To mark Refugee Week, we’re holding an online screening of the award winning documentary, For Sama, followed by an online Q&A Discussion.

FOR SAMA: ONLINE SCREENING + Q&A

This Refugee Week, join us online to watch the BAFTA Award-winning For Sama, followed by a Q&A with Special Guests.

COVID-19 has prevented us from holding our popular Refugee Week events as normal, so we’re extremely pleased to present this online alternative that will be just as powerful.

Buy your ticket, watch it with us online and help provide a lifeline for Refugees in Berkshire.

We are proud to present this event in partnership with Action For Sama, Deloitte Reading, Reading Film Theatre and Refugee Week.

YOU CAN HELP REFUGEES IN BERKSHIRE

Reading Refugee Support Group has been helping Refugees and people seeking asylum to rebuild their lives in Berkshire for over 25 years.

Refugees and asylum seekers have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

More than ever, Refugees in Berkshire are trapped, facing poverty, isolation and serious mental health issues on their own.

We’re working around the clock to provide food parcels, practical support, remote social activities and befriending to Refugees in need.

But while we’re working harder than ever, we’re faced with losing thousands of pounds in donations from cancelled events, money we depend on to provide that vital support.

By buying a ticket and supporting this event, you will be helping us provide a lifeline to Refugees across Berkshire when they need it most.
