Oxford Ramallah Friendship Association (ORFA) is a charity building grassroots links between people in Oxford in the UK and Ramallah in Palestine. ORFA works in tandem with Oxford-Ramallah Twinning. ORFA raises awareness through bringing groups and individuals from Ramallah to share their stories with residents of Oxford. Through this we hope to reduce the sense of isolation that comes from life under occupation in the West Bank.

ORFA is launching an urgent special winter appeal to support families in Am’ari refugee camp under conditions of Covid.  

We have already sent £1000 - we want to send another £1000 before the end of the year.
