Other Dishes

Like Afghani Rice with Chickpeas

I don’t think you will find the
equivalent of this recipe
anywhere else because I believe
my mother
was taught to cook rice in this way by my grandmother who came from Persia (today’s Iran)”.

Cookery terms and names of ingredients differ around the world. One person’s rutabaga could be another one’s neep or turnip. So we have included a reference section aimed at sorting out confusions.

Lots of Links


Several of the recipes are reproduced with permission from well known bloggers, foodie web sites and authors so you get links to a range of web sites and resources relating to food the world over.




Polio was once more feared than COVID 19 but thanks to vaccination many people  do not remember its horrors.

At the end of the 1980s, more than 350,000 children were paralyzed by polio every year all over the world. Today, Rotary and its partners have reduced the incidence of polio by 99.9 percent. However, until we see the last of the poliovirus, eradication efforts need additional funding.

It only costs: £35/$50 delivered

Roll Out the Barrel

Roll Out the Barrel aims to STOP anyone, especially small children, from carrying water, sometimes many miles in searing temperatures or through muddy fields, we provide a simple economic solution by sending a 30 litre Roll-Along Water Barrel. 

This prevents problems associated with water collection including physical deformity and compressed organs faced by people, more often than not young children, in developing countries.

These barrels improve lives, PLAIN and SIMPLE! And it only costs £35/$50 delivered

Every Cent Counts!

We would like to thank Shelter box for permission to use recipes donated to their Shine campaign

Right now, more than 113 million people around the world have been made homeless by disaster and conflict.  Shelterbox is working to change this. By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, they transform despair into hope.

They want to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster.

Every cent, penny and rupee counts in eradicating polio and easing the burden of water collection. We would like $7.50 US or equal in your currency, that is less than 2 cents a recipe. With that, we can buy 6 vaccines and a bit of a barrel. At $15 dollars (23 recipes per dollar) we can do twice as much. So please give what you can afford, even if it is less than $7.50 because every little bit achieves something.
