Fundraising for refugees from Al A'mari camp to visit Oxford in 2023
Recently, ORFA supporter Richard English successfully ran the half marathon and raised over £3000 (including gift aid) to help fund repairs to the kindergarten in Al Am'ari Refugee Camp. Thanks to everyone who contributed to this.
Now we're raising money for a group of adults and young people from Al A'mari camp to visit Oxford in the summer.
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.
