Test your literary knowledge and raise money for Firefly International with our ‘Quite Difficult Book Quiz 2020′. If you’re currently enjoying family and friends’ quizzes on Zoom, this is a great source for some more book questions! All our efforts are to raise money for Firefly, so the suggested donation is £5 but we appreciate any amount you can donate.
 
Covid-19 Update from Firefly’s partners
 
Our teams in Bosnia, Turkey, Syria and Gaza continue to work in these very difficult circumstances. Reports are coming through of cases of Covid-19 in Gaza and the Northern Syria camps, where, if it takes hold it will be devastating. But our projects are small and adaptable and we are working to keep children safe and engaged in educational activity.  Please see latest news for more information.
Firefly’s £2 Emergency COVID-19 Appeal
 
Every penny counts for Firefly at the moment and we really need your help. If everyone we know donates just £2 this would make a huge difference and will enable us to continue to support children affected by war in these very challenging times.
