Don't come, dine with me

About the Event

During the month of May we're asking you to turn not going out into a social event and help raise money for health workers fighting COVID-19 on the frontline in Malawi, Nepal and India. Fundraising events by our generous EMMS International community provide a lifeline to healthcare workers and poor communities. This is needed now, possibly more than ever.

However, coming together physically isn't possible right now, so we'd like to extend an invitation to you to host a virtual get together. The food, friendship and conversation are all real! We're asking you to turn a video call and meal into a special event and help raise vital funds for our emergency COVID-19 appeal.
