    Weʼve raised £11,736 to support a Palestinian Refugee Camp, Football Team & Cultural Center

    Funded on Thursday, 9th June 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    In 2019 I made and donated 500 football kits to Aida Celtic, a Palestinian refugee camp football team. The camp has been there since 1948, there are now 4 generations living there. I stayed with a family in the camp for a week and experienced their situation. This experience changed my life.

    I always wanted to return to the camp. This year I will return & take part in the Bethlehem Marathon. Anyone who knows me knows I'm not a runner, but I've decided to train to run 10K.

    I'd like to raise awareness of the situation, and donate funds to be split between the football team, and the cultural centre in the camp- The Lajee Centre. The camp is not tied to any political faction and has always practiced non-violent protest to the occupation. The cultural centre believes in the 'Right of Return' for all refugees as stipulated in United Nations resolution number 194 (December 1948).

      What is crowdfunding?

      Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

      The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
