AFOPA AL NAKBA EVENTCommemoration of 63 years of the Catastrophe!

The Palestinian Exile, also known as Al Nakba (Arabic for “The Catastrophe”), refers to the ethnic cleansing of native Palestinian peoples during the 1948 Arab-Israeli war. Israel’s first day as a nation was 15 May 1948, the day every year the Palestinians mark as their day of “catastrophe.”

In response to our recent membership survey in which you asked to hear more about what other AFOPA members are doing individually to support Palestine, these AFOPA members and supporters will talk about their recent work. All our speakers have recently visited Palestine or Palestinian refugee camps in the Middle East and will  give a short presentation on their humanitarian work with Palestinians. There will be ample time for your questions.

Also in response to your requests for more opportunities to socialise with other members and share Middle Eastern food,  we are extremely pleased that Anisa Hamood has organized a beautiful afternoon tea of home cooked Middle Eastern fare. Please come and join us for an afternoon to learn more about how members of AFOPA are using their skills and knowledge to support the Palestinians and enjoy socializing with like minded people at the afternoon tea.
