The Hands Up Foundation is a young and innovative charity which was set up by four British friends who loved everything about Syrian culture and tastes. Hands Up is a registered charity in England and Wales that funds medical and educational aid projects in and around Syria.

Hands Up raises money and awareness through creative fundraising initiatives, including the Syrian Supper Club, Cinema for Syria and Singing for Syrians. The idea behind everything Hands Up does is simple and positive; gather people together, remind them of Syria’s rich culture and do something good. If you would like to get involved by attending Hands Up’s events or hosting your own, check our website at www.handsupfoundation.org

Hands Up is a young and innovative charity that funds health and education programmes in Syria and neighbouring countries. Our aim is to make a positive difference to Syrians in need. The charity works directly with local organisations who know the needs and context of their local communities better than anyone. Our work is simple, positive and transparent.
