The women at DEWA would like to thank you for the support rendered during the launch of our book. We would not have done it without you. It was a privilege to meet everyone. We are delighted that we have made new friends and colleagues through the process and we look forward to working with you on future endeavours. For those who were not able to make it, or if you just want to relive the experience, please have a look at our YouTube video.

There are many people who we would like to thank individually, especially all the contributing authors – the women whose stories, poems, recipes and words of strength made the book a must-have. Please take a moment to read their profiles at the end of the book.

We are also forever indebted to several people who worked hard behind the scenes. Their diligence, patience and inspiring personalities have not gone unnoticed. The publicity through ‘off the shelf’ festival was an added advantage. Special thanks to Northern Refugee Centre, CAM Yorkshire, DFID, Northern College, Sheffield City Council, The Helen Tetlow Memorial Fund and City of Sanctuary for making this possible.

Different Cultures. One World. Women’s Voices from South Yorkshire is still available to purchase. We would appreciate it if you continued to support us by spreading the word. There is also an interactive section here on our website, where you too can send us some of your stories as well as give us your word of advice. We would love to hear from you, just head to Contact Us to get in touch.

The book launch was only the beginning of the work that lies ahead for us. We will continue to forge relations with you so that we can work together in pursuing equality, dignity and respect for all women worldwide. DEWA is committed to raising awareness of diversity and integration, and of the issues facing the thousands of displaced women who are living in South Yorkshire and beyond.
