Children in Gaza Ask for Help>>>>www.lightgaza.org<<<<

March 2012 an Irish Friends of Palestine Delegation of students from Derry and Coalisland went on a fact finding mission to Gaza. During that trip we visited a school to meet with officials in order to discuss urgent matters about the lack of electricity. During that visit children, parents and teachers, all approached the delegation organisers for help. Children need to be able to study at night, not having to hold a book in one hand and a lit candle in the other. Children want to be able to read without the use of dangerous lit candles as their only source of light! The children send messages for help below:

Help us!! We can't study!! We need light!!

Help us!! We can’t study!! We need light!!

Children in Gaza make plea for help.

And now in August 2014 they are still asking for help. Now things are much worse, the only powerplant in Gaza has been destroyed. from now on there will only be between 1-2 hours of electricity per every 48 hours:

After the recent deaths of a family due to the use of Candles, Palestinian schoolchildren are calling for a steady electricity/fuel supply and to live like other children. Until this happens they are asking for a safe source of light. The background on the creation of the Light Gaza Campaign can be found HERE, it is quite a story and a very sad one.

Signs say “We need to live like other children”
