Moroccan charity events in Edinburgh

I just wanted to bring your attention to this Charity which is based in Morocco. They are helping build and strengthen a very poor community in the isolated viallages in the Atlas mountains where they have very little of anything.Very similar to the work 'plan international' do in Egypt and other areas- the charity I wrote about before. This project even offers educational in the arts! The website is in french.. but worth a look at the photos even if you can't read french!

So what can we do.....? In Edinburgh this month there are 2 events which will be giving all profits to this charity. We forget that Morocco has areas covered by snow and many of these kids do not have adequate clothing etc and this is our plan- to provide warm clothing directly to those who need it there.

These are Fun nights for a worthy cause..... Please go along and support them!

Sun 11th Feb - Moroccan charity night- Free entry (with be raffles etc- donations to ASSID very welcome!!) with LIVE MOROCCAN BAND!!!!! There will also be Moroccan goods for sale. hey- its FREE!!!!!!!! Just turn up enjoy the music and dance the night away! 7-10pm

Sun 18th Feb- Bellydance Banquet. 7-10.30pm. £25 (ok not free- but you do get a fabulous meal included too, not to mention lots of wonderful dancers to watch) There will be Indian dance, flamenco dance, tribal dance, African dance, folklorique dancers and of course 'bellydance'. I ( and others ) will be performing a few times throughout this event! To get your ticket contact Khalid at Morocco Restaurant on 0131 652 3764. I'll see you there!

Both these events are in the Thomas Morton Hall, 28 Ferry Road, Edinburgh.

If you have any queries about either event please contact Khalid on the number above or email him at
