What is Hafla for Humanity?

Hafla for Humanity is a global network of bellydancers joining together to give back to the communities that enrich our lives with their music and dance.

  • H4H organizers  in more than 30 cities around the world raised over $22,000 for the International Rescue Committee‘s work with Syrian refugees in our first year (2015)
  • In 2016, we raised more than $8700 for the Amar Foundation‘s work with Yazidi women and girls escaping ISIS.

Local events in 2020 will take place in February and March.

Donate an item

We’ll be having a silent auction in the United States this year, too. To keep the auction manageable, we’ll restrict the listings to large-ticket items of interest to the entire United States: gently used costumes, festival packages, video classes, or bundles of smaller items would be perfect.

Message lauren@haflaforhumanity.com to discuss your donation.
