RAMADAN IN GAZA PROJECT

On 28 February 2021, we launched The Gaza Fund to help the people of Gaza during the month of Ramadan (April 2021). Our target was to raise US$10,000. We raised US$33,326 (HK$258,945 or £23,976).

I started this alone but now have 1-2 volunteers. Therefore, we have now decided to work beyond Ramadan, funding this charity out of our own pocket.

We have also launched a dedicated website: www.thegazafund.com. Please click here to track your donation and to get an update on your impact.
