My Time in Palestine: A Talk by Khalil Chris Chaney

Salam (Peace) Everyone!!

YMP has a very special evening in store for you on the 11th with a very special individual indeed, brother Khalil Chris Chaney!

Brother Khalil is an American-born convert to Islam who stayed in Palestine for the past 3 years. Initially going there to do a thesis for his Masters, he then completely fell in love with the people and the place that is Palestine. He has made several mini-documentaries on what the people in Palestine go through in their daily lives; the struggles, the conflicts, the everyday life. He has been working with the youth in hostile and conflict-filled environment for the past 25 years of his life before he went to Palestine and worked with the youth there. He is now married to a Malaysian lady and plans to settle down here. He has been offered a job in the education line, helping Malaysian teachers teach English.

Relive his experiences and observations of a refugee camp in West Bank through two short films that he made, and learn what ultimately led him to Palestine.

This event will be held at*:
Surau Dagang Avenue,
Jalan Dagang 4,
Taman Dagang Avenue,
Ampang, Kuala Lumpur
