Update Report on Projects implemented in March/April 2015

 

Report dated 4 May 2015

Project No. (14/2015): The scholarship project - we have implemented the program in 5 universities and next week we will complete the program for the remaining universities ( Al Azhar, Al Aqsa, and Al Quds open university). This project is very important for Palestinian university students because there is a huge number of students who can't pay for university fees due to the bad economic situation for many families. The new semester will start in September, and we hope to start a fund raising campaign in July /August to fund the new intake of students in September. We hope to make this project an annual program with the proposed campaign name "Donate to Educate" to raise funds for scholarship program or any other related educational programs.

Project No. (1/2015) Micro Financing project - We have completed the assessment and disbursed micro loans to 18 beneficiaries from the 2014 fund. We are now selecting new target groups of beneficiaries to disburse further micro loans under project No (1/2015) amounting to USD 30,000.

Project No. (18/2015) Lighting up A Home in Gaza - Construction and Relief Society invited electrical companies by tender announcements to supply the lights and 5 companies participated in the tender. They selected the best tender and insha Allah we will provide 250 LED systems for 250 families.

  1. - West of Gaza City – Gaza Governorate.
  2. - East of Gaza City– Gaza Governorate.
  3. - South of Gaza City – Gaza Governorate.
  4. - Rafah governorate.
  5. This makes up the first and second phase and we hope to gather more fund to cover the remaining governorates (Al Wustah, Khanunnes, North of Gaza).

Project No. (3/2015) Renting and furnishing DQWS kindergartens - DQWS completed providing electrical and electronic equipment and also toys and swings to the kindergartens. In the next two weeks, DQWS will provide the furniture (tables, chairs for kids with desks, book shelves and teachers chairs).

Project (02/2015) Provision of health care for needy and poor families - this is implemented by the Orphans House Society. The project is in the process of being implemented and so far 350 patients received help under this project by way of:

  1. - Supply of medicine for free.
  2. - 50 % to 100 % contribution towards the cost of operating surgeries.
  3. - Cash for patients who need money to travel to get their medicine.
  4. - Free medical preview for orphans and their families.

Project No. (12/2015) Freelancing day - Media youth Center and Rowad have completed this project and we are awaiting their report. So far, we see that this project is very useful for people looking for work using their skill with the internet, and it gives some hope for post graduate students as we have some programmers earning about USD 1000 per day from this freelance work using their skill on the internet.

Project No. (09/2015) Rehabilitation of poor families' houses - This project focuses on improving the lives of poor families especially those who live in homes with no roof, no bathroom , no kitchen. USD 2,000 can make a big difference to their homes and lives. The beneficiaries of this project are the very poor and not those who lost their homes due to the wars. A short video will be made available soon insha Allah to share with our donors as we hope to raise more funds for this project because these poor families are in dire need of help. When our representative in Gaza visited some of these families, he could not imagine how they survive, some of them sleep on sand.

Project No. (5,6, and 7)/2015) Providing computer labs to universities

  1. - UCAS has completed providing the lab and we are awaiting the final report from them.
  2. - Al Ummah University has completed providing the lab and have sent us their report.
  3. - IUG is in the process of providing the lab as they have asked for special equipment and are now waiting for the supplier to deliver it through the Israeli gate.

Project of (16/2015) Providing Halothani vaporizer - Yafa hospital has contacted the supplier to provide two units of Halothani vaporizer so we are awaiting for them to be delivered.

 

Providing Power Generator

Thank you to our Malaysian donors... Project No: (03/2015)  Project Name: Providing power generator for main building of Dar Al Quran Al Karim Wa Sunnah. Targeted Area: Gaza City. The normal power "electricity " is only available for 4 to 6 hours per day in Gaza Strip. All organizations are therefore forced to stop working when there is no electricity. By providing small or medium generators to these organizations, they can carry on with their work and provide services to the Palestinian People.

Solar system cost too much to cover DQWS need of power as they have 3 floors with about 20 administration rooms and tens of electrical equipment. The generators work better for DQWS.

LIGHT UP A HOME IN GAZA

Gaza now receives less than 4 hours of electricity per day leading to immense hardships.

Candle use resulted in home fires and many deaths. Some Palestinian families buy generators and fuel to generate the electricity but it is too expensive and most families live below the poverty line.

Others use the rechargeable lamps. It is not as expensive but can be used only in one room.
The LED system for lighting which VPM is funding is not as expensive (RM250), is available in shops and is easy to repair.

The LED System consists of a battery,  thin wires, 5 switches, 5 LED lights  for 4  rooms and 1 for kitchen. It works for 8 hours and is charged when electricity is available.

The VPM “LIGHT UP A HOME IN GAZA” project will light up:-

70 houses in North Gaza with Salam society
210 houses in Gaza City with Construction and Relief society
70 houses in Al Woustah  with Dar Al Yateem
70 houses in Khanuness with Islamic Society East Khanuness
70 houses in Rafah with Charitable Society for Relief and development

First Humanitarian Forum to Support Palestinians

Chief.AljazeeraMiddle East Monitor report, 30 October 2014

Doha - Representatives of more than 60 charities from 27 countries have gathered in Doha to raise funds for the redevelopment of the Gaza Strip and other aid for Palestinians. Delegates at the “First Humanitarian Forum to Support Palestinians” organised by the Qatar Charity are spending two days discussing the catastrophe facing Palestinians, not only in the besieged Gaza Strip but also the refugee camps in neighbouring countries. [Kia Ora Gaza's international solidarity aid partners are attending this important forum, including Viva Palestina Malaysia. Editor].

The forum is being held under the auspices of the Prime Minister of Qatar, HE Shaikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa al-Thani, who attended the opening session on Wednesday. The need to disseminate information about the humanitarian crisis facing Palestinians, particularly but not exclusively in Gaza, is paramount following Israel’s latest invasion and ongoing military crackdown across the occupied Palestinian territories.

Pleas to lift the crippling siege on the Gaza Strip have fallen largely on deaf ears, one speaker told the audience, and with Egypt destroying the tunnels described by Western journalists as “Gaza’s lifeline”, the people of the coastal territory face enormous difficulties, with even basic necessities in chronic short supply. “This,” he added, “is no less than collective punishment, but who is holding Israel to account? While support for Israel from the US and EU is to be expected, why are China and Russia silent about what is happening to the Palestinians?”

While most attention has been focused on Gaza, for obvious reasons, the charities were reminded that the situation in the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem is also dire. Israel’s Judaisation policies in the Holy City have driven away almost two-thirds of the Christian population, said another speaker. Addressing the conference via a pre-recorded video message, the Imam of Al-Aqsa Mosque pointed out that the Israelis are undermining the Islamic identity of Jerusalem by their policies. Shaikh Dr Ikrama Sabri told delegates that this is not a Palestinian issue alone; it should be a major concern for all of the world’s 1 billion Muslims.

Appreciation was expressed at the support given by the government of Qatar not only in Palestine but also other areas of the world facing humanitarian disasters. Information about the relief efforts of the Qatar Charity was given to the forum participants, who are being urged to mobilise and donate as much as possible for Palestinians in desperate need.
