Thanks to the generous donation of ticket sales of Samah Sabawi's award winning play Tales of A City by the Sea, we are able to expand Viva Palestina Malaysia's Winter Relief program - today we visited the home of the AlShowbaki family in Khanyounis to distribute heaters and blankets and assess what improvements can be done to their home . Elsewhere in Gaza we have distributed blankets ,warm clothes , food and heaters while repairing homes to protect them from the wintry chill.
VPM has been actively organizing fund raising activities to:
- raise public awareness of the humanitarian crisis in Palestine
- provide medical support to victims of Israeli attacks in Palestine
- create employment opportunities for Palestinians
- foster friendships between Malaysians and Palestinians
