Take the Fast-a-thon challenge!
Yesterday, Syria Solidarity UK activists were at the Ramadan Tent Project to announce our Break the Siege Fast-a-thon challenge.
We challenge you to experience the daily trauma of besieged Syrians through fasting.
Choose from 23rd June to 1st July, i.e. 18th-25th of Ramadan (lunar calendar).
Fasting times for London: from sunrise (2:40 am) till sunset (9:20 pm).
Raise awareness of starvation of civilians in areas besieged by the Assad regime
Exert pressure on the government to start air drops to besieged areas
Support advocacy to help break the sieges and to protect civilians
Please follow the link to fill the form or sign up at the stall today:
You can also email your details to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please take a selfie with a sign saying you are fasting in solidarity with people in besieged in Syria, or record a short video message, and send to email@example.com or message to our Syria Solidarity UK Facebook page.
To take part we ask that you pledge: £50 if you plan to fast one day, £150 if you plan to fast for three days, £200 if you plan to fast for seven days.
Start getting sponsorships from family, friends and colleagues!
