H.E. Madame Sylvie Bermann, the French Ambassador to the UK is kindly hosting a special dinner on Thursday 9th June at her London residence, in aid of our Every Step Counts appeal.

The evening, generously sponsored by Morgan Lewis, will raise essential funds to provide rehabilitation to disabled and injured people in countries like Nepal, Jordan and DR Congo. The event will include a silent auction, with bids and donations to the appeal doubled by the UK government.

Our guest speaker for the evening is photographer Giles Duley, who highlights lesser-known stories, including the situation of disabled Syrian refugees.

Prizes include a French lunch experience at the Dorchester with photographer Giles Duley, four backstage passes at the Royal Opera House with Champagne, and a week’s stay in a beautiful villa in Spain.
