“We hope that through the #CookForSYRIA campaign we will not only be able to raise much needed money for Unicef’s Children of Syria Fund, we will also increase awareness of the plight of children in the war-torn country. Through cooking, sharing recipes and the power of social media, we invite everyone to help make a difference and positive contribution towards this important initiative.”

What is

#CookForSYRIA is a global fundraising initiative curated by Clerkenwell Boy and SUITCASE Magazine in partnership with Unicef NEXTGeneration London. #CookForSYRIA first started as a simple supper club, where a group of foodie friends came together to celebrate Syrian cuisine and raise money to help Unicef protect Syrian children. Now it’s a global movement, and everybody is invited to the table. From cookbooks to supper clubs, #CookForSYRIA is raising vital funds for Unicef with support from the world’s top chefs, restaurants and volunteers.

Syria is one of the most dangerous places to be a child. War has raged in the country for nearly seven years, affecting over 8 million children. One in three Syrian children have grown up knowing only crisis. Their childhoods are filled with fear and insecurity. And now their nightmare worsens because winter is here. Frightened children face freezing temperatures in makeshift tents.
A child is a child, no matter what. These children should be safe and warm, They should be with their families. They should be in school; playing, learning and living like any other child.
Unicef is there for every child in danger. By supporting #CookForSYRIA, you’re helping Unicef – one of the few humanitarian agencies working inside Syria – keep more children safe. Just £50 could help set up a child-friendly space for vulnerable Syrian children, where they can play and learn in a safe and secure environment. Thank you.

Syrian cuisine is one of the oldest in the world and reflects the country’s rich cultural heritage with influences from across the Middle East and beyond. Whether you’ve cooked for Syria, eaten at one of our partner restaurants or just want to repost beautiful images of Syrian inspired dishes, we are asking you all to spread the word.
