According to the UN over 1,600 people have been killed and nearly
20 million affected, this is the worst flood in living memory for
Pakistan. The situation in Pakistan is so tragic it has been
described as worse than Haiti's earthquake or the tsunami
that took place in Asia. Inshallah, WharfMA will be fundraising
for the Pakistani flood victims.

We will be cruising on the Thames on the M.V. Erasmus, a light,
airy and spacious boat on three levels, offering superb views
of the attractions and skyline of London.

An evening of powerful spoken-word poetry by Amir Sulaiman who
is described by Mos Def as "...a highly electric and magnetic
artist" and hosted by Sister Kristiane Backer, awarded winning MTV
presenter and author of “From MTV to Mecca”.

All welcome with 3 course iftar.
