VPM - Enjoy and Learn Swimming

Posted in Events

"Enjoy and Learn swimming"
A free swimming summer camp for more than 100 children from North Gaza.
Activities were in a newly excavated swimming pool completed with a contribution from The Italian Centre for Cultural Exchanges (VIK) in Gaza.

Apart from acquiring swimming skills, fostering a near normal social milieu, the program was critical for the rehabilitation of these children who exhibited latent or overt features of PTSD - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder due to the hostile occupation and repeated military attacks.

Posted in Fund Disbursement

Ramadan Updates from Palestine.
Today morning in the
Middle of Gaza governorate,
120 poor families bought what they needed using VPM Ramadan food vouchers donated by generous Malaysian and friends of VPM.
Engineer Hani Thuraya, VPM director of operations in Palestine wrote, "When i visited the site,
I could not tell who are the poor and who are the rich from the people shopping in the market. This is probably one of the hidden advantage of the food vouchers."

We wish each and every one of you; the organizers, the players and the youths all the best and hope you will benefit and enjoy the tournament.

Sincerely

Celebrating the hero, Muhammad Ali (1942-2016) - BDS South Africa

Posted in Other News

PRESS STATEMENT
Celebrating the hero, Muhammad Ali (1942-2016)

04 June 2016

The human rights and Palestine solidarity organisation BDS South Africa joins the peace-loving peoples of the world in mourning the loss and celebrating the life of boxing legend and activist, Muhammad Ali.

Ali is an inspiration for those us fighting for justice - be it in the struggle against racial injustice, economic exploitation or Israeli Apartheid.

According to news reports, in 1974 already, the former boxing champion told a press conference in Beirut, that “the United States is the stronghold of Zionism and imperialism.” On a later visit to two Palestinian refugee camps Muhammad Ali is quoted as saying: “I declare support for the Palestinian struggle to liberate their homeland."

In 1985 the heavyweight boxer travelled to Israel in an attempt to secure the release of Lebanese and Palestinian prisoners held by the Israeli regime.

Ali’s determination and commitment to civil rights, anti-imperialism and social justice motivated many of our people (and our international allies) in the anti-apartheid movement. Today Ali inspires many Palestinian solidarity activists in the struggle and boycott of Israeli Apartheid.

Muhammad Ali - our champ, the peoples champ, the champ.

Hamba Kahle, Comrade Muhammad Ali. Lala ngoxolo.

Report on campaign in 2015

Via this project Salam Society for relief and development provided the basic needs to the families during Ramadan by providing them Ramadan voucher card where they went to shops and bought what they really need from foodstuffs such as (Rice, Sugar, Tea, Chickpeas, Spaghetti, Cooking Oil, Cheese, Frozen Fish, Milk, Juice, Eggs…etc.), and this allowed the beneficiaries more flexibility, liberty and opportunity to choose or select items and quantity that they require for Ramadan month, in addition it enabled them to buy more nutritious food, e.g. fish, vegetable, meat, milk etc… 

These impoverished people feel happy when they know that this aid is funded from their Muslim brothers living overseas.

#Light_Up_Gaza_2016

Viva Palestina Malaysia & Palestinian orphans home association invited tenders for trading companies in Gaza to apply for providing LED systems for safety lightning.

Israel boycott: British academic turns down prestigious award & cash prize for 'political' reasons

Israel boycott: British academic turns down prestigious award & cash prize for ‘political’ reasons

Published time: 26 May, 2016 14:28


A British academic has turned down a prestigious Israeli award and £225,000 ($300,000) in prize money for “political” reasons, in what appears to be the latest attempt by Western activists to boycott the Jewish state.
Catherine Hall, a history professor at University College London (UCL) was due to receive a third of The Dan David Foundation £690,000 ($1 million) prize for her work’s “impact on social history, as a pioneer in gender history, race, and slavery.”

Hall, however, declined to attend the award ceremony in Tel Aviv on Sunday, saying her rejection of the prize was “an independent political choice” after engaging in “many discussions” over the Israel-Palestine conflict, AP reports.

Her stance appears to be inspired by the international Boycott, Divestments and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which several prominent British academics have joined since 2005.

In a statement to the British Committee for the Universities of Palestine, a pro-BDS group, Hall announced she withdrew from the prize “after many discussions with those who are deeply involved with the politics of Israel-Palestine, but with differing views as to how best to act.”

The foundation said Hall initially accepted the prize enthusiastically when she was selected in February, and only later asked to withdraw her name without giving a reason.

It said it would donate Hall’s prize winnings to support Israeli and international history scholars.

Previous prize recipients include former US vice president Al Gore, former British prime minister Tony Blair, cellist Yo-Yo Ma and filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen.

BDS supporters say the movement uses non-violent means to end Israel’s occupation of the West Bank, but the Israeli government says the movement’s true goals are to destroy the country and has anti-Semitic undertones.
