It all began with a dream, a dream to change the perception of the word "Syria." A word that has flooded the media and people's minds to the extent that it always brought a negative connotation. Rarely did anyone know anything about Syria prior to the war. 


"I couldn't stand the pity and sad eyes when I told people I was from Syria. There had to be a way to show the hidden gems of Syria, the gems the Syrian people had brought with them from across the Mediterranean.” 

Back in September 2017 Yara, a design consultant, come across three women who had a lot more than the words Syria and refugee; they shared a passion: cooking Syrian food with love.  


It was not long before this passion become a social enterprise called "From Syria with Love." A catering company that aims to empower and give purpose to Syrian housewives who now call Belgium home. 

The mission is not just to empower the women and tickle the tastebuds of the tasters; it's a bigger vision to blur the lines between the locals and the new comers. read more about us in the media
