Hope you are well!
 
Bidna Capoeira want to start social projects with Syrian Refugee in the Camps in the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon. 

There is a lot of need out there and we are developing a programme to help also with a 'Capoeira response'.
 
Bidna Capoeira needs YOUR support for our work improving the lives of traumatised children through the Brazilian sport and art-form of capoeira.

Our projects help children and young people in fragile, fractured communities break cycles of violence and improve their educational performance by expressing themselves through music, dance and movement.

Any gift can make a big difference to our work, but a regular gift helps us to plan better for the future.

We do provide tax receipts.

It is great to be giving that hope to these children, but we still need more funding to secure its future. If you were able to help Bidna Capoeira, some little regular donations would be a huge help so we can continue to spread Capoeira in the Camps. Please also share this with your network and If you have any idea's please let us know!

Also, we've been pretty busy since we met helping set up our new office in Palestine, each time we go there we are struck by what a desolate conditions the people are living in. So, it is good news for them that Bidna Capoeira have a new permanent office! 
Our very first capoeira workshops have started in Ramallah area at the beginning of March, this year we are planning to reach 620 vulnerable Palestinian children. 

Please help!
