Human Appeal to open new shop in East London
International humanitarian aid and development charity Human Appeal is opening a shop on London’s Whitechapel Road on Thursday 2 July. The shop will be opened officially by John Biggs, Executive Mayor of Tower Hamlets, at 1pm.
The shop will stock products made by Human Appeal’s beneficiaries, such as artisans and farmers, and sourced through field offices and partners in our countries of operation. Many of the products are hand-made and ethical. Products currently for sale include:
- Medjool dates, olives, olive oil, spices and marinades (produced in the West Bank and Gaza)
- Honey (from Spain)
- Soaps (UK)
- Greeting cards (UK)
- Gifts and hampers
Human Appeal also works in Pakistan and Bangladesh and hopes to sell goods from those areas in the near future. We also try to support local small businesses who want to put their products out to the market.
Othman Moqbel, CEO of Human Appeal, said: “We are delighted to be opening our second shop in London, we know that shops selling produce which is ethically sourced, and directly benefit people in developing countries, are popular in London. These shops are also an excellent example of how Human Appeal helps deliver long-term sustainable help to people in developing countries.”
The shop address is; 138 Whitechapel Road, E1 1JE.
