Defend Press Freedom

In honor of World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, we hope you will consider supporting The Media Line this month.
The role of a free press has been at the foundation of democracies around the world for nearly 200 years.
Yet, in many countries, publications are censored and journalists put their lives at risk to report the truth.
A transparent and reliable press covering the important issues of the Middle East is needed more than ever.

The Media Line is proud to assume this responsibility and has over 20 years of success in shaping the role of news reporting in the region. We hope you will support our efforts by making a donation today.

Thank you!

Thank you for confidence in The Media Line.

Vegan Syrian Cookery Class with Yusuf

Vegan Syrian Cookery Class with Yusuf

Starts on Tue, 26 Jan 2021, 6 pm Greenwich Mean Time (UTC±0)

Tickets (£20.00+£2.15 fee) here.

Join Yusuf in preparing a wonderful Syrian meal for his new online cookery class! This is your chance to learn a brand new cuisine, support an amazing cause, and eat great food.

The class will be conducted as an interactive virtual cook-along. The classes usually range from 1-2 hours long. The chef will lead the group step by step through the recipes; stopping frequently to answer questions, share anecdotes, and provide feedback on your dishes!

Before the class we will send you a list of ingredients, quantities and equipment so you can join ready to learn! We will also send you a reminder email 3 days before the class takes place that will include the Zoom link, titled “Your upcoming online Migrateful Class”. You can also find the Zoom link on the Online Event Page, accessible through the link included in the Eventbrite reminder email.

Message from Yusuf: “Hello. I am Yusuf. I come from the North of Syria. I grew up in a big family where my mother spent every day cooking. Sitting down and eating all together was an essential part of my upbringing. An exciting part of this was that every day two to three neighbours would bring us dishes to eat and we would give them a dish in exchange. It was an amazing way to keep trying new things!

I joined Migrateful to give me a platform to integrate, cook and teach my recipes to different people from the around world. Food is what unites us. One of my favourite Syrian sayings is “the hungry bird doesn’t dance, so let’s break bread together and talk.”
