Ramzy Baroud ran the Seattle Marathon on 25 November 2012 on behalf of Viva Palestina Malaysia to raise funds for our women's micro financing project in Gaza.
21 Families have benefited from this USD20,000 donation drive. which was disbursed to various Micro Financing Projects in Northern Gaza Strip.
On 2 June 2013 the Family & Development Society held a course to 21 beneficiaries on how to make their micro Finance Projects a success.
We will work closely with the Family & Development Society Gaza, to administer & manage the performance of individual businesses. The forecasted payback period is 24 months in which the fund will be reallocated to other respective beneficiaries for future projects.
Viva Palestina Malaysia is represented by our local Representative in Gaza, Mr.Hani Thuraya.
We thank you all donors to this effort.
VPM Gaza Project Coordinator.
