Vartouhi & Tamar
Many of life’s small joys involve food – whether that’s having friends round for dinner, eating out, or simply grabbing a snack from a favoured shop. But for many people worldwide, these activities aren't always possible because of persecution and conflict.
Vartouhi (pictured right) runs a kitchen in Aleppo, Syria, which makes and sells Armenian cuisine. Sadly, she had to close her shop because of the country’s civil war. Once the fighting subsided, she hoped to return, but the building was damaged and utensils had disappeared. Thankfully, your support helped fund repairs and replacements for the kitchen to reopen.
Vartouhi’s story is a reminder of how baking can be a tremendous blessing to our persecuted family. It’s why we’ve put together Bake With Them, a resource featuring Vartouhi’s recipe for Baklava – as well as other recipes from Nigeria and India – for you to raise money for our persecuted brothers and sisters.
These are easy-to-make recipes – and we're pretty sure that once you've tried and tasted them, you'll quickly make them again!
The pack contains everything you need to run your very own baking fundraiser, including a handy how-to guide, recipe cards and stories from the persecuted church, posters, labels and gift aid forms.
You can pick up loads of other handy tips and resources here, including guidance on staying safe and how to best promote your fundraising on social media.
