London eateries in Tooting raise funds for Palestine tomorrow
A new ‘Eat Out to Help Out for Palestine’ initiative will see restaurants in south London helping to raise funds tomorrow 5 August, the Tooting Newsie has reported.
Eateries in Tooting have teamed up with charity group Human Aid UK to donate between 50% to 100% of their proceeds towards the cause.
The fundraiser will see vital money being raised for the ‘Play for Palestine’ campaign by eight businesses in the area.
The Halal-friendly restaurants are: Bubbles & Shakes, Fattwins Burgers, Kaspas Desserts, Lahore Karahi Tooting, Lahore-spices Tooting, Royal Mahal, Steakout Official, and Wafflemeister UK.
A spokesperson for the fundraiser reportedly said: “There are 1.8 million Palestinians in Gaza who need access to basic healthcare. Hospitals in the Gaza Strip have been stretched beyond capacity. Medicine, equipment, fuel and electricity are in short supply.
“Human Aid UK is supporting the Emergency Ward at Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza, which, on average, serves 13,526 patients every month. Human Aid UK supplies essential medical equipment, including patient beds, ambulances, and emergency food packs.”
