"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.
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."

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.
