Hello to Wycombe Refugee Partnership’s new Admin
4 May 2021
I am excited to be joining Wycombe Refugee Partnership and hope to carry on the great work Hannah has done. I am also keen to bring my own knowledge and experience to this role. With my experience of working in the admin sector for two international corporations for more than seven years I would like to contribute to the administrative part of WRP and help create effective and safe ways of working for all volunteers and individuals supported by the charity. My academic background includes Political Science and German and Arabic Language and I am sure I will be able to bring in my knowledge into the everyday activities of WRP.
Since summer 2020, I have been very active as a volunteer in Buckinghamshire, primarily at the Wycombe Food Hub, where I led the establishment of the community bazaar.
Beside the Food Hub, I have been working as a befriender and support worker with vulnerable individuals with the Oxford based charity Sanctuary Hosting and the Slough Council initiative Building Futures Together.
For a period, I was also a German language tutor, teaching adults in a language school in Bratislava and also organizing language conversation clubs for my colleagues at work.
In my free time, I enjoy cooking and baking, going into nature and playing football.
I hope to learn a lot from working with this fabulous charity and thank you all for welcoming me to the team. If you would like to reach out to me, you can email me on .
I am very much looking forward to meeting you all in person soon.

IMAD'S SYRIAN KITCHEN
On the 26th October 2019, Imad Alarnab, who was one of the first refugees that we resettled and supported, returned to
High Wycombe to cater for a dinner event at All Saints Church. Over 40 people attended to eat a delicious three course Syrian meal with 12 different sharing dishes. Imad also gave a speech about his journey and his appreciation of the support that he received from the community of High Wycombe. We raised £880 that will be shared equally between
Wycombe Refugee Partnership and All Saints Church. Thank you to everyone who came along and got involved!
