RAMADAN IN GAZA PROJECT

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

I started this alone but we have now grown to 6 volunteers (3 in HK; 1 in UK; at least 2 in Gaza). We have now decided to collectively work and fund this charity out of our own pocket. We are in the midst of registering this as a Society (2022) followed by applying for NGO status in HK.

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