we had a fundraising event in Manchester in aid of the Libyans on the Libya/Tunisia border, i didn't realise we had sooooooooo many Libyans in Manchester mashallah.
the weather was great, there was a BBQ, and plenty of stalls and food, hopefully plenty was raised for those in Tunisia as the situation is dire especially in the Ramada camp, can you imagine 40 degrees sun with no air conditioning on electricity in tents that are not designed for heat!!!

Summer is close and teh ehat will get worse and even the clothes on there back is not suited for the weather. The children have been through sooooo much and seen things that no child should ever have to see, the women have escaped but many with trauma and have been affected psychologicaly, and the rape is a whole other topic!

may Allah ease there situation and grant Libya victory soon so people can start re-building there lives.

some shots of the day to share with you all:
the imaginative ways in which the freedom flag has been put into everything and anything is great!the Qatar flag was also part of our day ;)
