25 SEPTEMBER-10 OCTOBER 2021: THE BIG RIDE FOR PALESTINE

Now in its fifth year the Big Ride for Palestine (Australia) has raised over $77,000 for important projects in Gaza, the West Bank and Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon.

The 2021 ride will follow the COVID-Safe approach adopted last year, where participants ride or walk a self-nominated distance over a fortnight, seeking sponsorship from friends, comrades, and supporters of Palestine. This allows people to join, even in lockdown as exercise is allowed. In places where restrictions permit, local group rides and walks can take place.

Following discussions with Union Aid Abroad-APHEDA, we have decided that in 2021 funds will again be sent to its partner organisation, the Palestinian Women’s Humanitarian Organisation (PWHO). Palestinian refugees in the camps in Lebanon are presently facing an extreme crisis generated by the convergence of three factors, the COVID-19 Pandemic, the collapse of the Lebanese economy and a political crisis with no functioning government in the country.
