How the friendship was formed

Jenny and Saraya met through a Christian Muslim forum residential conference. They spoke to each other for 30 seconds in an ice-breaker game and discovered both had the same favourite colour – blue. The group of women who met at the conference continues to meet at events and for meals in each other’s homes. Recently Saraya organised a collection for harvest working with Jenny’s church. The collection by ISRA-Feed the poor and All Saints Kings Heath brought in 235 kgs of food – enough to provide 450 meals.

Saraya & Jenny: ‘There is more that binds us together than keeps us apart. We have daughters the same age and we have lots to talk about. It’s about building bridges, not walls.’
