The joy, laughter and fun @ the summer swimming camp in Gaza.
Thank you to all our VPM donors who made it all possible and worthwhile.
"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.

ENDORSEMENT LETTER FOR THE ANNUAL RACHEL CORRIE RAMADAN FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT FOR YOUNG MEN 2016
VIVA PALESTINA MALAYSIA (VPM) overwhelmingly supports 2016 Rachel Corrie Ramadan Football Tournament in Rafah City in loving memory of Rachel Corrie, an American Activist who sacrificed her life in 2003 whilst trying to protect Palestinian houses from being demolished by the Israeli Army.
We are extremely inspired by the perseverance and tenacity of the Palestinians, especially the young people, in their resistance against the military blockade and occupation in their quest for justice, freedom and peace.
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.
