London charity pop-up brunch for needy families in Yemen
A group of concerned Yemeni women have teamed up to host a pop-up brunch in North West London that will raise money for underprivileged families in Yemen.
Nuha Al-Shabi and her team will be serving a spread of Yemeni cuisine on Sunday 25th August at Lost Boys Pizza in Kentish Town with all proceeds being donated to the Hamada Alareqi charity.
According to the charity, 54% of people across war-torn Yemen live in poverty with children suffering widespread malnutrition and life threatening diseases.
With Yemen involved in political unrest and armed conflict since 2015, Hamada Alareqi charity has supported over 2,900 Yemeni families through distribution of monthly food baskets costing £37 per month.
Nuha and her team have collaborated with Fatma Al-Baiti, founder of Meet me at Fatma’s Yemeni pop-up concept, to present a fully Halal menu with tickets going for £15.03 (£13.50+ Universe booking fee).
Served in true Yemeni style with sharing dishes placed in the middle of each table, the brunch will comprise a main course and a surprise sweet dish at the end.
Kicking off with a warm cup of Shai Adani, or Yemeni spiced chai, the brunch will then move on to the following dishes:
- Khameer – a light and airy Yemeni “dough-not” that has a hint of spice and sweetness.
- Fasuliyah – a homemade red bean curry cooked and served traditionally, along with freshly baked Yemeni bread.
- Accompanied by freshly made Yemeni chutneys and some white cheese with herbs.
With three 1-and-a-half hour sittings at 10am, 12pm and 2pm, there are currently only 40 tickets remaining which can be purchased here.
