I’m going to blog about what’s happening in the middle east soon – it’s too huge for me to rush into without reading loads and doing a lot of thinking. It’s also heartbreaking.
However, this has just come in from Ahmad at Darbucka, about a fund-raising event they are holding on Thursday – I only wish I could be there. I can’t, but you might be able to –
Many of us are deeply saddened and feel helpless about
the war in Lebanon. To help get urgently needed
medication to Lebanon, we are organising a charity
event at Darbucka. This has been organised in less
than a week not to waste time in getting the
medication to Lebanon, therefore we are relying on
friends to help promote this.
The event will take place this Thurs at Darbucka (182
St Johns St, EC1V, tubes – Angel or Farringdon). It
will start at 6.00 in the gallery with posters
displaying information about Lebanon followed by
entertainment downstairs, – tribunal dancers, DJs,
raffel (first prize -dinner for 2 at the Gallery
bistro at Darbucka, 2nd prize- champagne, 3rd wine,
plus other little prizes). We don’t want to exclude
anyone so we are asking for donations on the door
rather than an entrance fee. Lebanese meze platters
will be available – £5 of the cost will go to Lebanon.
Lots of us are feeling very depressed by what is
happening in Lebanon. This event will include
entertainment to raise our spirits so that we can
continue with our efforts and not forget about this in
a few weeks. This will not take away from the
seriousness of what is happening.
Even if you can’t come, please forward this message to
people you think might want to come.
Asthma inhalers are desparately needed. If you have
any unused inhalers or untouched antibiotics, please
bring these along to the event.
