From her Facebook page: "In light of everything going on around us these days, from Gaza to Syria...
The biggest gift we can give refugees is the opportunity for a dignified life.
An opportunity to be productive citizens, to live fulfilled lives and be the best that they can be, despite the circumstances that they found themselves in.
That is what SEP does... Working with Palestinian and Syrian refugee women in the camps to produce incredibly beautiful, high quality, stunning pieces of art sold all around the world; from Harrods in London, to Boutique 1 in Dubai, to Geneva and Hollywood... taking the work from refugee camps, to the world".
