SolidariTea Arabia

SolidariTea is known as being a part of the ‘Face to Faith’ foundation – an organization which promotes better inter-faith understanding and seeks to bring communities together. 

SolidariTea Arabia came about after a group of pupils at Jumeirah College were invited to participate in a Face to Faith Foundation conference call with schools in neighboring countries.  The message from this call was a poignant one: It is better to light a candle; then to curse the darkness. 

I recently attended a SolidariTea get together, so much fun, so much inspiration.. check it out ..

About the PCRF
The Palestine Children’s Relief Fund is a registered non-political, non-profit, organization that was established in 1991 to address the medical and humanitarian crisis facing Palestinian youths in the Middle East. It has since expanded to help suffering children from other Middle Eastern nations like Iraq, based only on their medical needs. The P.C.R.F. helps to locate free medical care for children from the Middle East who are unable to get the necessary and specialized treatment in their homeland.
