The Date Project was established in 2015 by a few inspirational SKT Welfare volunteers in Bradford. The idea was simple, raise funds for the Al-Huda Bakery in Syria by selling a box of the finest medjool dates for £10 during Ramadan. In the first year of the project, 100,000 loaves of bread were distributed by the Dates4Syria project. In 2016, a staggering 3.5 million loaves of bread were produced through this initiative.
ETHICALLY SOURCED DATES
The dates we sell are ethically sourced; they are the finest Medjool dates from the Jordan valley inside Jordan, hand-selected and packed by a community of Syrian refugees who are employed in the process.
Please note, none of the dates have been selected from Occupied Palestine/Israel. To clarify, the Jordan Valley is a large area, not only consisting of Israeli or Palestinian occupied land, but also parts of Jordan. Our Medjool dates are grown in date farms located in the Jordanian segment of the Jordan Valley and as such, customers should have peace of mind regarding who they are supporting.
