I think a pertinent way to kick this blog off, before getting into what it’s about, is to mention Manal Timraz. A local resident and owner of the popular student hang-out Habibi’s in Coventry, she has lost 15 relatives (11 of those children) to this conflict. She is giving a call for blankets, candles and medical supplies for the affected civilians in Gaza that are “waking up to destroyed cities and no homes”.
- DONATIONS can be dropped off at Habibi restaurant in Far Gosford Street, Coventry, between 5pm and 11pm every day.
- The appeal is asking for clean blankets and warm clothes as well as candles and basic medical supplies such as antiseptic.
- Manal said: “I’m very happy to receive any ideas, any contributions and any signs of solidarity people want to show – even if it’s sending a message of support with a small donation.”
- If you want to help but don’t know how call Manal on 07971 952 323 or email email@example.com
