When you buy this doll, you contribute to an important cause in Shatila: raising awareness among mothers and daughters about the traumatic effects of child marriage.
Jafra was a girl who loved to dance in her purple dress. Her life changed abruptly when her father decided to marry her to Abu Mahmoud – an older man to whom the family owed money.
Child marriages occur all too often in Shatila. £5 from each doll will be donated to The Women’s Committee of Shatila who address this issue with stand-up comedy and theatre performances inside the camp.
