A big thank you to CADFA’s volunteers for organising and running CADFA’s Eid event at the Calthorpe Project on 23rd July. It was great to hear the SOAS Arabic band playing music from Fayrouz and Marcel Khalife – and to discover that our EVS volunteer from Jerusalem, Nadine, is a serious singer, who we hope will sing again with them at our next event – Do look out for it!

CADFA visitors from Camden and Abu Dis visited Keir Starmer, our new MP, to tell him of our concerns about human rights in Palestine.
