FUNDRAISE AT HOME
Challenge your friends and family to a bake-off for gloating rights, then sell the culinary creations to raise funds. If you want to make it extra special, why not use the amazing Taste of Freedom cookbook, which is full of delicious traditional Syrian recipes. All proceeds from the sales of the book come to us.

You can celebrate your birthday, wedding, anniversary or graduation by making a real difference. Set up your personalised fundraising page today and share it online with your loved ones.

Give more for less
Many companies offer Payroll Giving for their employees, allowing you to make regular donations to Doctors of the World UK directly from your wages, before income tax deductions. So if you pledge £10 each month, the cost to you is only £8 but we receive the full £10. Ask your employer if they offer Payroll Giving and complete this simple form to get started! Whatever you choose, don’t forget to ask your employer if they have a matched funding scheme, which could double the impact.
