Gift Back by the date project

The Date Project proudly launches Gift Back after every ramadan. The perfect gift that just keeps on giving!  

Each Ramadan 'The Date Project' sell thousands of medjoul dates nationwide in order to raise money for important causes around the globe including providing food in Syria, water solutions in Palestine and emergency aid in Yemen.

The perfect gift right? But now there’s more! 

Once you have enjoyed the delicious dates, you can fill your empty tin with gifts, and bring a smile to a little boy or girl in need.
This year your gift will go to children in Yemen and the UK. These children have seen so much devastation, many have lost their homes and loved ones due to a conflict that they didn't choose to be in. Millions are facing starvation, and their futures bleak.
