Dadaab is is now the largest refugee camp in the world and it was terrible to see the thousands of desperate women and children arriving, having trekked hundreds of miles; with many children dying of malnutrition on the way. It was also extraordinary to witness the compassion of the men and women working in the camps and so great to see first hand how FilmAid is working with both the refugees and the other aid organisations, helping impart vital information in the mass communication way that only film can do.
The Electric Cinema have very kindly given FilmAid a dedicated screening on Wednesday afternoon so they can raise some much needed funds to help support the activities they know will make a massive difference where it is needed most. There are 100 seats to fill so do please forward this to anyone you think may be interested in helping (and, of course, seeing the infamous Harry Potter film!).
Tickets are expensive! £55. That’s because the money is needed to send out there to make a difference in the camps.
Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2 Wednesday the 20th July at 1.30pm at The Electric Cinema, Portobello Road, Notting Hill Gate.
