Come Dine in Syria

Share a Syrian meal with your friends and #savealife

There's plenty of  Syrian recipes online: choose one that's simple and easy to make - don't spend a fortune, keep it simple: the ingredients for Lúgh's meal cost less than €15.

Tell your friends not to bring gifts to the house but to use the money saved for their donation. Between them Lúgh's friends raised over €150 

A video would be great (there's loads of free video online editing programs that you don't even need to download - just google them). But you can just as easily make a clip on your smart-phone. We'd even love just to see a photo of you and your friends participating in this great challenge.

Post the video to your own social network, but remember to share it with us at

Whatever you collect from your friends you can donate to us through our online donation system (just use the online donation form on this page) 

Get your friends to host similar dinners and widen the circle and get others to #savealife

Human Appeal is one of the few Irish charities that is still able to work inside Syria: your support goes directly to the people who need it. We don't need to use intermediaries.
