Athens, 13 April, 2010
Dear Friends and Supporters,
In less than a month our boats will set sails for Gaza. The Greek campaign Ship to Gaza (www.shiptogaza.gr) has joined forces with four organizations to break the illegal blockade imposed by Israel in the 41 kilometer strip. The coalition, comprised of the Turkey-based IHH, the European Campaign to End the Siege on Gaza, the Swedish Ship to Gaza, the Free Gaza Movement and the Greek Ship To Gaza, will launch a flotilla of ships laden with cargo, media, parliamentarians, celebrities and activists to Gaza early next month. Over 500 passengers from more than 20 countries will take part, and 5,000 tons of cargo, including cement, prefabricated housing, other building materials, medical equipment, and educational supplies will be delivered to Palestinians in Gaza.
The Ship for Gaza campaign has set the goal to buy at least one cargo ship and up to 1500 tons of the above mentioned aid, pledging to assist in the rebuilding of the over-ten thousand houses which were totally destroyed or damaged beyond repair during Israel’s 23-day Gaza massacre of December 2008.
A fund-raising campaign has been initiated and is actively ongoing all over Greece. You can help the campaign by sponsoring the purchase of cement and other materials by directly donating in the account below. You can also buy shares of the ship directly or threw a representative of your choice in Greece. A shareholder entity has been legally established for this purpose with many shares to be bought by individuals in solidarity with the mission depending on their financial capabilities.
For each donation, an equivalent amount of cement to Gaza will be purchased and delivered in your name. A receipt for a minimum of one ton of cement purchased will be sent to your address. Your contribution of 150 Euros to buy one ton of cement will help the families living in a tent for more than a year, to rebuild their houses.
Please contact our representatives for the funding or make your donation for the purchase of cement in the account that has been opened in the National Bank of Greece for this reason.
