Many Acts. One Purpose.

About Us

Founded in November 2011 at the start of the Arab Spring by two AUS alumni Jihad M’nasria and Luz Villamil with the vision of getting people in our community more involved in positive humanitarian work. Since then, Flea 4 Charity has raised hundreds of thousands of dirhams, collectively contributed tens of thousands of hours to community service, and put smiles on countless faces.
