Camden Abu Dis Friendship Association CADFA

CADFA is a human rights organisation, that was set up in 2003 to promote cultural exchange and friendship between Camden and the West Bank. Each year CADFA takes groups of teachers, women and youth to Abu Dis and arranges for people from Abu Dis to visit London.

In summer 2016, CADFA produced a series of short films about the camp and the Wall.
