Fantastic cause - helping Syrians get back on their feet and giving them a sense of community and belonging. You can expect absolutely delicious homemade food, lovely company and people, and a great way to see the real streets of Istanbul. Can't think of a better way to spend a night out. I plan to donate to this cause in the future.
