Gaza Sunbirds: The para-cyclists raising money for the conflict in Gaza

Last weekend saw hundreds of cyclists from London, as well as hundreds more from five other UK cities, take part in the Big Ride for Palestine.

It’s an event not only showing support for Palestinian people, but also fundraising for the Gaza Sunbirds.

The Sunbirds are a group of para-cyclists, many of whom lost limbs after being attacked at a peaceful protest in Gaza back in 2018 and at this moment in time are focused on delivering aid to thousands of people in Gaza who find themselves under siege.

Paul’s been hearing more about the group from their international coordinator Karim Ali.
