Story

Darjeeling Express restaurateur Asma Khan is proudly supporting The Lotus Flower by raising funds to establish new cafés for women and girl ISIS survivors.

Darjeeling Express restaurateur Asma Khan is proudly supporting The Lotus Flower by raising funds to establish new cafés for women and girl ISIS survivors. 

The social enterprise cafés are an extension to existing women and girl centres set up by The Lotus Flower at camps in Kurdistan, northern Iraq. Each café will provide conflict survivors with a safe space to meet friends and eat healthy, high-quality food. 

With a shortage of culturally accepted public spaces for displaced women and girls to gather, as well as a lack of employment opportunities, it is difficult for them to rebuild their communities. Crucially, the camp cafés will be managed and operated by the women themselves. With the initial equipment, structures, capital goods and raw ingredients provided by The Lotus Flower, the cafés will enable skills-building, communication and healing. The women will retain any profits as an income, while furthering their cooking skills and gaining vital business knowledge. 

Please support us to get this much-needed project started. 

Thank you, 

Asma Khan
