There is always a space in our hearts as to help others facing hardship around us. And as Muslims it is our duty to try our best to take care of the Ummah (Muslim Brotherhood)
So what are we doing for Gaza? It might be making dua (Supplication), raising money for them, sending them food/medicine packages etc
Our Gaza Charity Appeal
Which one are you doing, if any? Or have we forgotten about them completely?
Al-Hikmah Girls Gaza Fundraiser
On Monday the 3rd of December 2012, Al-Hikmah Girls School decided to start a Fundraiser in aid of our brothers and sisters in Gaza. The girls came in wearing the colours of the Palestine flag, it was great seeing an Ocean of colours come into the school, their faces were gleaming with happiness as I took some pictures of the wonderful and delicious food they had brought in to sell. I even over-heard one of the teachers tell the students to cover their Banoffee Pie in case she drools all over it =D

There were a lot of stalls and the tables were packed with things for you to buy, from cakes, to hot food like pizza, sweets and even milkshakes!
There were a few problems we encountered such as the chocolate fountain mishap and there not being enough tables for the students to use, but they just kept on going because they knew they had to try their best for Gaza and raise as much as possible.
I didn’t get to take pictures of everything, I wish that I did, but the girls selling tactics were so great, it wasn’t long before most of the stalls had sold out!
At the end of a hectic day we raised over £500 and we’re still counting! I think theres face painting today, woohoo, more pics to come inshaAllaah.
Hope you enjoyed reading about our fab fundraiser day,
Power to the Peaceful
