A Big Thank You From the Al Tafawk Centre, Jenin, West Bank, Palestine

We raised £860 for the children of the Jenin Refugee Centre

Last month we launched our biannual appeal for the Al Tafawk Centre in Jenin.  We raised a record amount.  Most of the schools in the area have closed because of Trump’s cutting off of funding to UNWRA. Many of the children rely on the Centre for their only meal of the day, so every penny is needed.
We asked people to channel any money they wanted to pay via The Brighton Trust which paid the £25 transmission charge. Amongst those giving were Brighton and Hove UNISON (Local Government) Branch (£100) and UNITE SE 6246 Branch (£100).
We will be making another appeal around May/June as the Centre is particularly busy over the summer when there is no school.  Once Again Many Thanks and here are a few pictures of a child holding the receipt.
If you would like to contribute in the run up to the summer please send any donation to:
