“We hope that through the #CookForSYRIA campaign we will not only be able to raise much needed money for Unicef UK’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

#CookForSyria is a global fundraising initiative curated by Clerkenwell Boy Boy and SUITCASE Magazine in London in November 2016, and is now launching in Hong Kong. Throughout the month of November, the campaign will encourage everyone from Hong Kong’s top chefs to people at home to cook and raise money in aid of UNICEF Hong Kong’s Syria
Crisis Appeal.

Why
#CookForSyria

The ongoing conflict in Syria has caused the largest humanitarian crisis since World War II, with the lives of more than 8 million children in danger. Many have lost family, friends and schools and have been forced to flee their homes. 50% of all Syrian refugees are children and boys as young as 7 are being recruited to fight. The risk of losing a generation grows with every day that the current situation deteriorates.
