This week the IWA and WOFA worked in collaboration with Phoenix Canoe Club to host a 2 hour kayak taster session for kids aged 9-15. We were joined by two groups of 12 children, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, who were given the opportunity to enjoy this thrilling outdoor water sport. There was social distancing measures in place as well as all safety precautions which allowed for a fun filled day that was also safe. Members of our team were present to oversee the activity – and also join in! – and it was clear to see that all the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves! Below is some of the lovely feedback given to us by the parents of attendees. We loved seeing everyone enjoy their day and we hope to plan more events like this in the future!

“Thank you very much to everyone at the Iraqi Welfare Association for bringing happiness into my children’s hearts”

“Thank you so much for the efforts in creating fun activities for our children during the summer holiday”

“Thank you very much to everyone for this event, we enjoyed the day thoroughly and God bless you”

“Thank you to the organisers for this event that brought so much happiness for our children”
