As many of you will know, the Club is twinned with the Afaq Jadeeda (New Horizons) Community Centre in Gaza, with which Mona is very much involved. On her recent visit to this
country she met with a group of about 15 club members to give us an update on the centre’s work and on the situation in Palestine generally.

The discussion was very much practically based, in terms of how we can give solidarity and support. Several ideas were put forward, including visits by our members to Gaza, and vice
versa. Another suggestion was our sponsoring Palestinian students at university. We will be pursuing these ideas throughout the autumn, please get in touch if you feel you can help in any way, or would simply like to know more.
