Eat Together for TIAFI

Every year the Three Towers invites guests to join us for a night of unique and delicious Syrian food, served traditionally.  All proceeds go to TIAFI, a charity based in Izmir, Turkey helping Syrian Refugee women & kids without means build up their lives again.

TIAFI stands for Turkish and International Assistance for Integration. This is a great project and set up by Ann O'Rourke from Waterford.

Esther was inspired by Ann O'Rourke and travelled to Izmir in November 2017 to visit the Day-Centre and help in the kitchen.  Since then, every year in the beginning of November we come together and eat Syrian food on a long table.

'If you are more fortunate than others, it is better to built a longer table then a higher fence'

All proceeds go to TIAFI. Find out more about Ann O'Rourke's inspiring work, or make a donation!  Click here...

Quinoa-kale salad,

Bulgur Salad,(Eetch)

Home made Hummus and pita bread,

Kebab Hindi (meatballs in Tomato Sauce)

Some of the recipes came from Rada Assi, from Alleppo.
