Conocer la historia de Noor y darnos cuenta que su historia es la historia de millones de Sirios fue conmovedor. También fue un honor contar con la presencia y participación de Joan Raventós director de eacnur Cataluña. La convocatoria de Mea Boykins fue un éxito y la organización fue muy buena. La noche contó con grandes profesionales como  Phun music y  el fotógrafo Washington Pallo. Grandes marcas donaron sus piezas para realizar una subasta solidaria: Tecla BCN, Esaü Raoul Haute Couture, Pepitablanca y VSB. Y Patricia Puebla donó una de sus bonitas fotografías. Desde el espacio Santa Tecla 11 gracias Mea por hacernos parte de este gran evento.

To be in the presence of a moment that shifted the mindset and hearts by hearing from a Syrian refugee about her experience was powerful. I learned things that weren't in the news and that Syrians are constantly fighting a battle of displacement from a place called home. In many ways, I now want to help in any way I can.

This event was really nice. The organizator, Mea, did a great job in raising funds for the Syrian refugees. The purpose of the event came out well due the speeches and the guests. The venue and DJ fitted well with the concept.

 The testimonial was really interesting, I didn't know much about Siryan Refugees and with the testimonial I had an overview of what's happening, it's shocking... Nice place and DJ. Thanks to the organiser Mea Boykins.

This event was amazing!! The testimonial from the Syrian refugee was so intense, informational & touching. We were able to learn more about the struggle of refugees and hear personal experiences. The venue, Santa Tecla 11 was beautiful and well set up! The tapas were great. This was also a great event for networking. The Director of UNHCR ACNUR Catala committee was present as well as other entrepreneurs. The DJ was great, the host Mea Boykins was well spoken and facilitated a great event in a country which is not her native country and was able to raise over 800 euros to assist with this cause!! 

Many thanks to Mea for hosting this beatuiful event, happy to be a part of it. Peace!

It was a blessing to be able to put on an event here in Barcelona and fundraise in a city where I do not speak the native language. I am happy to have built a network of people that trust in my ability and wish to work with me further. Santa Tecla 11, the venue is beautiful, chic and just right for the vibe of the event. The venue owners Carmen and Alejandra are so kind, giving & loving as they offered their space free of charge for this event. The DJs from Phun Music were also amazing. They volunteered their time for this partnership with UNHCR ACNUR, the United Nations Agency for Refugees, and had a great playlist to match the vibes of the event as well. The photographer Washington Pallo also volunteered his time and does amazing work. Major thanks to all the artists who contributed to the silent auction. Thanks to Esaü Raoul Haute Couture - an Designer from Barcelona who donated over 1000 euros of jewelry and purses to auction for Syrian Refugee Benefit event as well as Pepitablanca, VSB. Y Patricia Puebla & Tecla Bcnwho donated pictures, designer pillows and purses!!! I am thankful that Noor was able to speak to the audience about such a pivotal humanitarian crisis and it was great having the Director of UNHCR ACNUR Catalan present to introduce her and speak about the importance of this great organization! Thank you to everyone that contributed to this event and fundraiser & GLORY to God in the Highest for making this possible! xo
