The Maia Project – Water for Gaza





You Are Invited to a Benefit Fundraiser for

The Children of Gaza

Your contributions will provide the Beit Hanoun Preparatory School for Boys in Gaza with a clean water supply system

Founded in 1988, the Middle East Children’s Alliance is a nonprofit organization working for the rights and well-being of children in Palestine, Lebanon and Iraq. MECA sends shipments of aid, builds playgrounds and supports projects that make life better for women and children.

When MECA asked the children in Bureij Refugee Camp in Gaza what they could do to help them, they responded that what they wanted more than anything was to have a clean glass of water to drink at school. Because of the Israeli occupation and the diversion of water to the settlements in the West Bank and Israel, the water table has been lowered to such an extent that the water in Gaza is almost undrinkable and causes disease.

Who do you think that you are foolling?

Who do you think that you are foolling? Nothing goes into Gaza unless Hamas approves it and benefits from it. Hamas uses the distribution of aid as an instrument of power and control. Its a Mafia-ocracy.
