MONTHLY KIRTAN

in aid of Medical Aid for Palestinians

   

Sunday 24th June 2018

with Bharati & Dinesh


6pm - 7.30pm | doors open at 5.45pm


St Lukes Therapy Centre, 53 Cainscross Road, Stroud GL5 4EX



Chanting the many Names of the Divine together uplifts and can take us to a deeper space within ourselves. At it’s deepest level it is simply Creation Singing to the Creator.


One of the many beauties of kirtan lies in the fact that no special ability or training is required.


Cost: £8 / £6 on the door


Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP) is a UK Charity which works for the health and dignity of Palestinians living under occupation and as refugees. They provide immediate medical aid to those in great need, while also developing local capacity and skills to ensure the long-term development of the Palestinian healthcare system.


On Friday 30th March 2018 six-weeks of peaceful demonstrations, known as ‘The Great March of Return’, began. Thousands of Palestinians symbolically walk towards the fence that separates the Gaza strip from Israel where they meet live fire from Israeli soldiers.  At least 102 Palestinians have been killed and more than 12,271 have been injured (many with life changing wounds). Even the medical teams that assist the injured have been attacked (including at least two deaths) undermining the overall capacity of Gaza’s health system, already struggling under a decade of blockade and closure, with longstanding shortages of medical supplied, electricity and fuel.



This is a regular Kirtan on the last Sunday of each month (except in July & August)



Next Kirtan: Sunday 30th September 2018 at 6pm (in aid of Sri Radhey Seva Trust)
