Join us in making a difference @musethefoundation. We’re raising money in aid of Human Appeal’s Gaza Hospital Fund and Interpal’s One-to-One Orphan Sponsorship Programme. All funds raised towards our £25k target will go directly to Human Appeal through JustGiving and we are pledging to match up to £25k from the appeal, with this amount going directly to Interpal from the agency.
Since the violence began, families in Gaza are being bombed out of their homes, with entire apartment blocks flattened in airstrikes. As Palestinians observed one of the holiest months in the year, 53 people in Gaza have been killed, including 14 children. Sadly, the numbers are expected to rise as we enter Eid al-Fitr.
Human Appeal is an international humanitarian and development organisation. They have been working in Palestine for 30 years, delivering life-saving aid, and empowering the most vulnerable. For each £500, they can provide clean water to 33 people in Rafah, helping to build a desalination plant that will provide 60,000 people with fresh water every day. Every £70 donated will provide emergency food parcels for a month to those affected by the situation. £1,000 will provide emergency medicines for hospitals which are so desperately in need and £6,000 will help rebuild and repair a damaged home in Gaza.
Interpal empowers Palestinians to face their challenges and hardships in our principal areas of operation: the West Bank, Gaza Strip and the refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon. The One-to-One Sponsorship Programme supports over 10,000 Palestinian children, including orphans and those with disabilities. For just £25 a month, sponsors have a positive impact on the lives of children and families by providing them with a regular financial lifeline.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to us.
