Congratulations and a huge "Thank-you!" to NCV Director Faik M Hanna. Faik has been a part of the team at New Citizens Voice for over ten years (since 2008). From Baghdad but now widely travelled, he brings a perspective of many different countries to the NCV Team.

Faik contributes to NCV as a journalist and photographer, though considers these simply as personal hobbies. His wonderful photographs fill many of our galleries and bring a lot of joy to participants of NCV events.

We can only deliver these unique citizenship events thanks to our partnership with Parliament. Special thanks go to Eleanor Laing, one of the Deputy Speakers of the House of Commons for attending our event - our participants enjoyed speaking with her.
