Project Common Bond
Project Common Bond was designed to reach out to teens across the globe who have lost a loved one due to an act of terrorism. Their common bond unites them as one global community standing up for peace. The project offers SEFF the opportunity to send representatives to an Annual Summer Camp Conference. Four young people will travel with Doreen Mullan, our Health & Wellbeing Caseworker, to the conference in June 2023. You can keep up-to-date with their progress via our social media pages.
