A few weeks ago, we enjoyed hosting our first live event celebrating TalkMatters’s third birthday.  We know from feedback that our audience enjoyed it, too.  We usually follow up every event with a recording.  Unfortunately, we are not able to this time, so we have asked our speakers from the three co-operative Israeli-Palestinian initiatives to record a short message for you.

This week we bring a message from Suliman Boulos, of Oasis of Peace UK. He spoke at our live event, and has kindly sent us this message for followers who were not able to join us at the event itself.

Oasis of Peace UK

Oasis of Peace UK supports the inclusive learning process at the unique village of Wahat-al-Salam~Neve Shalom (WASNS) in Israel where Arabs and Jews live in a shared, equitable society.  There are four establishments – a school for children, an educational institution for adults, a spiritual centre and a youth club.

Dr. Suliman Boulos was raised as a second generation resident at WASNS and lived there until the age of 39. Suliman has lived and worked in Germany, South Korea and the UK. Suliman is an Oncologist and the Senior Medical Director at AstraZeneca in Cambridge where he lives with his wife and two children. 

During our live event, Oasis of Peace UK also played us a video, introducing us to their work and showing some examples of what they have achieved. You can watch their video below:
