For UK friends - Help with the women's visit...

Dear CADFA members and friends

** Next women's links meeting is on TUESDAY at 6pm at Kentish Town Community Centre, 25 Greenwood Place NW5 **

The CADFA Women's Links group is working hard on organising a visit of Palestinian women to Britain in mid-March. We have had a women's visit on or around International Women's Day every year since 2006, and this year the visit focuses on young women from across the West Bank. They are coming on in a visit part-funded by Youth in Action, with a focus on sharing skills as well as life stories and discussions of women, change, Palestine and human rights.

These are great visits! We hope you will meet the women visitors and there will be many opportunities to meet them. Right now please put thse dates in your diary: the evening of 20th March and all day on on Saturday 24th March

Now we also need your help. Fundraising is a big priority at the moment, as the visit will cost thousands of pounds and Youth in Action money will only go some of the way.

CADFA has big financial problems when we take on this sort of project and we do not manage to get the match-funding before it starts - we absolutely have to this time. See below for things coming up - we hope that you can join in or support these initiatives!
