Dr. Eyad el Sarraj (1943-2013) was the first psychiatrist in the Gaza Strip  
and a renowned campaigner for peace with justice who recognized the  
vital connection between mental health and human rights. The founder in 1990  
of the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme (GCMHP), he received the  
first human rights award given by the US Physicians for Human Rights, among  
many other international honors. His courage, decency, independence of mind,  
and vision of a better world made him a beacon of moral conscience and hope  
for those Israelis seeking peace with Palestinians and Palestinians  
struggling with both the occupation and their own ruinous political  

Nearly a year after his death on December 17, 2013, “Instilling Hope in  
Gaza” will examine the conditions in the Gaza Strip that shaped his life  
and work, how the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme is today forging  
ahead with his work, and what more can be done to build on his legacy in the  
years ahead.

Suggested donation at the door: $10 - or more! Funds will support the work of  
the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme.
