The Maia Project -- Water for Gaza

Sunday April 25^th 2010

                       

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.

 

*/Your contributions of 11,000 dollars will provide the children at the 
Beit Hanoun Preparatory School for boys with clean water. /*

 

*Join us for an afternoon of speakers, slide show, music, fundraiser 
sale and refreshments*
