Issue 11 of our newsletter Syria Notes focuses on Aleppo and the work of Syria Civil Defence, also known as the White Helmets.

We were very pleased to host Raed Saleh, head of Syria Civil Defence, and Farouq Habib, head of training, at our event on 22 November. Below is an introduction to the work of Syria Civil Defence by our co-chair Alison McGovern, and an introduction to the work off the APPG by co-chair Andrew Mitchell. For more videos, see our YouTube channel and our Facebook page. More material from the White Helmets event will follow shortly.
