Sky and Ground

A Syrian family risks the perilous road to asylum

Leaving all they know behind them, the Nabi family journey away from Syria towards their destination: Germany. One member takes it upon himself to lead fifteen of his family and friends across borders using his phone’s GPS and the guidance of his brothers in Berlin. As refugees, they experience repeated setbacks and heartache but their love for one another remains their richest source of morale.

Follow every high, low, risk, and success that these refugees endure in the hope of a better life.

The Q&A Panel

We will be announcing our panel of Special Guests very soon.

Refugees in Berkshire Need Your Help

We have been helping refugees and asylum seekers 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.
