Beauty entrepreneur Huda Kattan, whose brand is named after her makeup line, has revealed that $1 million will be donated by her business to aid efforts in Gaza.
In an Instagram post, Kattan stated, It’s been A MONTH of immense suffering in Gaza, and unfortunately things are getting worse.
It is crucial that we always support the oppressed and utilise our platforms to call attention to injustices. We cannot remain silent and act as though nothing is going on. $1 million will be donated to humanitarian organisations in Gaza by our Huda Beauty brands, which include Huda Beauty, Kayali,.
She expressed her gratitude to her customers, stating that it is largely due to them that she is able to make the donation. Thus, I appreciate your help. Combined, we can effect change.
Iraqi-American Kattan, who is based in Dubai, has received a lot of recognition for her strong advocacy on behalf of the Palestinian cause.
One noteworthy instance involved an Israeli product enthusiast criticising her on Facebook for her support of Palestine and threatening to stop selling to Israelis. Kattan answered with a direct and concise statement, saying, “I don’t want blood money.”
