Fundraising for refugees from Al A'mari camp to visit Oxford in 2023

This summer we are organising a visit to Oxford for a group of adults and young people from Al A’mari Camp.

One of the ways that ORFA and ORT promote human rights and raise awareness is by enabling groups from Ramallah to visit and share their stories with Oxford residents.  Through this we hope to reduce the sense of isolation of life under occupation, and encourage supportive and enriching cross-cultural connections.

The visitors will stay with ORFA supporters in their homes, and during their time in Oxford they will visit schools and community groups, run workshops and share their culture, from cookery and singing to dancing and embroidery.

Some of the exciting cultural and linking events that are being planned are with the Oxford University Science Museum, the Pitt Rivers Museum (jointly with Palestinian History Tapestry Project), and with local schools and the Cowley Road Carnival.  

We need to raise £7000 to fund the visit.

Please help if you can.
