Our secret pop up supper clubs are designed to raise awareness about crucial causes in Palestine, every month we select a charity to donate to and a fund that specifically relates to that month's theme. We try to be as environmentally and socially sustainable as possible, sourcing local ingredients where we can and authentic Palestinian ingredients that are provided by important social enterprises.
The first event was held at Cafe Palestina which belongs to CADFA. CADFA works in the UK to promote awareness about the human rights situation in Palestine.
Time has already run out for many people and millions more are struggling to survive. The 2014 conflict in Gaza was catastrophic, killing 2,251 Palestinians and injuring another 11,436 people. A third are living with serious disabilities. December's event was in aid of Human Appeal's Gaza Emergency Fund.
The scale of human loss and destruction in Gaza during the 2014 conflict was catastrophic and has, in the words of the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, “shocked and shamed the world.” During the 50 days from 8 July until 26 August 2014, 2,251 Palestinians were killed, 1,462 of them are believed to be civilians, including 551 children and 299 women. Sixty-six Israeli soldiers and five civilians, including one child, were also killed. January's event was in aid of the UNRWA's Gaza Emergency fund.
The Penny Appeal way of doing charity take small change and make a big difference with it. February's event Love & Conflict was in aid of their campaign 'Love Palestine' which gives the children of Palestine a brighter future by investing in education.
March's event is in aid of Muslim Aid who are currently launching an appeal for the Palestinians in response to the hardship and challenges that they are facing in the Middle-East region.
Over 90% of the water from Gaza’s sole aquifer is unfit to drink. Contagions in the water are causing disease and health disorders, such as renal failure, high blood pressure and osteoporosis, while most families are using up to a third of their income to buy water from unregulated vendors. Sadly, this is also often contaminated.
April's event will help build a water desalination plant on the Gaza coastline for the entire population. The plant will provide over 600,000 people with safe water, whilst providing employment for the local community.
