British Red Cross appeal

All of us have been horrified by the immense loss of life and suffering we have witnessed.

The humanitarian crisis is worsening by the day and there is an urgent need for aid to ensure that innocent victims of this conflict can get the support they need (food, water and medical supplies).

We would invite everyone who is able in Haringey to consider making a donation to the British Red Cross appeal to help provide vital aid to those who need it.
