This year, MC Events hope to raise awareness about Palestine, primarily educating people about Palestine, its culture and the significance of Jerusalem and Masjid Al Aqsa.
Any money raised from the event will be used to cover the cost of the event and any surplus will be put towards the Unite For Palestine campaign.
