Campaign for Human Rights in the Philippines (CHRP - UK) is a non-profit organisation and has been promoting Filipino-British solidarity since 2006. It was established in response to the increasing number of political killings and human rights abuses taking place in the Philippines.
Now on its 10th year, CHRP UK is proud to organise its first ever fundraising dinner. This event is for the benefit of the Lumad children and will feature Filipino dishes cooked by Chef Mae Williams of Pepes Kitchen (pepes-kitchen.org.uk)
Over the past 4 years, CHRP UK has been actively supporting the campaign by the Lumad community against mining companies which have aggressively been destroying the land and livelihood of many of the indigenous people. The massive militarisation and companies’ aggression against the indigenous communities have also resulted in the disruption of the Lumad children’s education and many of them grow up without adequate education.
All profit from the event will go towards the building of two classrooms, purchasing books and school supplies.
