Back to Fundraise

The nationwide fundraising initiative is back in 2019.


We’re encouraging everyone in Australia — from top chefs to people at home — to open their hearts and put on their aprons to cook and raise money for UNICEF’s Syria Crisis Appeal.

How to get involved with #CookForSyria:

Bake Sale

Organise a #CookForSyria charity bake. Get creative and team up with your friends, family and colleagues to bake some delicious cakes and donate the proceeds via our JustGiving page or you can make your donation via the donation form below.

Host a #CookForSyria event

Anyone can host their own #CookForSyria event. Whether it’s an intimate meal at home or a dinner party with friends and family, your contribution will raise vital funds to provide life-saving supplies for Syrian children and their families. Here are some handy tips to help you start planning your #CookforSyria event as well as some delicious Syrian-inspired recipes.

You can collect donations by setting up your own JustGiving page, which allows you to keep a running tally of all the donations made to your page. You can also promote your JustGiving page by sharing it on Facebook, Twitter or email to encourage family and friends to support your #CookForSyria event. Alternatively you can make your donation via the donation form below.

Participate in your restaurant or café

Throughout June, we are inviting restaurateurs, chefs, bakers and café owners from around Australia to take part in #CookForSyria by putting a ‘Syrian inspired twist’ on one of their favourite signature dishes (or by creating a new dish) and donating at least $5 from each sale of that dish. To sign up to be a participating restaurant/cafe please email

Make a one-off donation

More than seven years of conflict in Syria has caused one of the largest humanitarian crisis of our time. The conflict has left 8.4 million children needing emergency aid. Syrian children have lost their homes, their security, their childhood. UNICEF is urgently appealing for funds to deliver emergency supplies, protection and support to millions of children caught in the line of fire and living on the move as refugees. Provide a much needed one-off donation today.

Together, we can make a real difference to the lives of millions of Syrian Children.
