*University of Edinburgh students & members only*

“For Sama” is a documentary film surrounding the 5 year journey of filmmaker and journalist Waad al-Kateab and her daughter, Sama, during the Syrian Civil War. As one of the BAFTA”s most nominated feature documentary, “For Sama” has been said to be deeply moving and powerful. We are wanting to air this documentary to educate our members and ourselves, on the on-going Syrian Civil War and how devastating and impactful it is, whilst raising money for an organisation that helps provide volunteers to support these type of crises. Indigo Volunteers is a charity that assists with humanitarian projects, including the refugee crisis. As the Pro Bono Society aims at promoting access to justice, we are creating this fundraiser to help support Indigo Volunteers in their goal for providing volunteers to help assist in these crises across the globe.
We are wanting to promote this fundraiser with Indigo Volunteers with this primary launch event for Pro Bono Week UK 2020 with the documentary viewing, but we will be continuing to help raise money through other initiatives, such as an upcoming virtual baking challenge that will take place across our social media accounts.
