Benefit Voku for Darfur Women Action Group, Sudan, by SKRAPS Solidarity Kitchen

Monday 6 May 2024, Benefit Voku for Darfur Women Action Group, Sudan, by SKRAPS Solidarity Kitchen. Food served from 7pm, no reservation.

We are SKRAPS (Soup Kitchen for Radical Actions and Political Solidarity), a newly emerged cooking collective with the goal of transforming rescued food into tasty vegan dishes, and by that showing solidarity with national and international resistance initiatives.

Among other projects, they provide education for children living in camps, skills training, trauma counseling and psychosocial support for women survivors of sexual violence, as well as leadership and capacity building trainings for women.
