Story of Solidarity with Syria & London: facing COVID-19 together
Many people in Syria and in London who have been living in dire need are now facing the COVID pandemic. Marhabtayn is raising money to give practical support. In Syria, we are distributing hygiene kits and other essentials to people who are living in makeshift camps: without homes to self-isolate in, or water to wash hands. The hygiene kits currently cost £5 per household but the price is steadily rising. In London, we are donating money to local charities providing free food to people who can’t afford it.
Marhabtayn is a Syrian word meaning ‘double welcome’ and the Marhabtayn Syrian Supper Club (registered charity Marhabtayn Trust) is a group of Londoners – Syrians and friends – working to show solidarity with people caught up in Syria’s conflict and refugee crisis. We put on suppers that raise money for Syria, and showcase the country’s cuisine, culture and hospitality. We send money to people and groups who need money to deal with some of Syria’s many enormous personal tragedies and crises. We identify these people and groups through a network of partner organizations in neighboring countries, run by young Syrian activists. Many of the Marhabtayn team members work for human rights organizations in countries neighboring Syria, and that is how we get to know these activists.See other opportunities to help us here.
