On Saturday, 30 July, Samidoun Région Parisienne held its monthly stand at the Aubervilliers market. This was an opportunity to launch fundraising for Al-Awda Hospital in Gaza, while paying tribute to Ghassan Kanafani on the 50th anniversary of his assassination. The residents of Aubervilliers responded enthusiastically to the stand, welcoming Palestinian flags and making generous contributions. The organizers also renewed their letter-writing workshop for imprisoned Palestinian women in Damon prison, with the creation of collective birthday cards for Israa Jaabis and Nawal Fatiha.
The campaign to support children’s health care in Gaza aims to raise funds for AWDA, formerly the Union of Health Work Committees (UHWC), a Palestinian organization founded in 1985 that provides medical care to 300,000 people in the Gaza Strip every year. You can join in the campaign by making a donation online at samidoun.net/gaza. Your generous contributions will expand access to medical care for Palestinian children subjected to military occupation, repeated attacks and the ongoing Israeli apartheid blockade of the Gaza Strip.
