We're raising money for Medical Aid for Palestinians!
03 May 2021
WE DID IT!
In just one month we raised an incredible £5,956 for Medical Aid for Palestinians, bringing the running total of Tommy's birthday fundraisers to over £11k.
From the bottom of our hearts, we'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who donated and shared the fundraiser. We feel incredibly touched to have such generous and well meaning customers who stand with us against injustice.
Many of you may already know our Founder, Tommy, has dedicated his last few birthdays to raising money for Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP). Well it's that time of year again! For the month of May we will be collecting donations for this brilliant cause. To donate simply head to the cart page and select an amount. No purchase required, no minimum, and 100% of your donation will go to MAP.
MAP have spent the last three decades providing essential medical care to those living in Gaza and the occupied West Bank as well as speaking out internationally about the injustice of the occupation.
In the three years since we started doing the annual fundraisers they've raised an incredible £5072.55! This year our goal is to bring that total to £10k.
If you'd like to know more about the brilliant work MAP do, take a look their current campaigns that cover everything from tackling isolation among Palestinian health workers to photographing disability rights in Gaza.
"MAP's vision is a future where all Palestinians can access an effective, sustainable and locally-led system of healthcare and the full realisation of their rights to health and dignity.
Through our offices in the West Bank, Gaza, East Jerusalem, Lebanon and London, we work with trusted and experienced local partners to achieve this vision.
Our programmes provide access to essential health services and build local knowledge and skills to address local health problems. In times of humanitarian emergency, we are ready to respond rapidly with aid and assistance.
MAP is also committed to bearing witness to the injustices caused by occupation, displacement and conflict. We speak out in the UK and internationally to ensure the political and social barriers to Palestinian health and dignity are addressed."
