Cement Donations

Donate 5 bags and get a keyring!

The embargo on cement, iron and even glass has prevented thousands of Gaza families and dozens of schools from rebuilding their lives following the military assault of 2009.

A visit to the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme

In May 2010 Turkish Humanitarian organisation IHH and the Free Gaza Movement will sail from Turkey and Cyprus to break the blockade of Gaza.

You can support hundreds of humanitarians from the UK, Ireland, Turkey, Malaysia, Greece, Sweden & around the World deliver 4,000+ tonnes of cargo with a flotilla of ten ships.

The ships will be loaded with the much needed cement & building materials, medicine & medical equipment, wheelchairs, school & art supplies, playground & sports equipment – basic necessities we take for granted, blockaded for the past 4 years, making normal life impossible.

The Free Gaza Movement will be delivering toys to children at the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme (see video, right) which helps provide a brighter future for the innocent victims of conflict.

One convoy has the power to change the lives of thousands.
Your donation has the power to change even more.

This is a fundraising effort promoted by Reading PSC – the Reading branch of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign. Reading PSC was originally known a ‘Bucks/Berks PSC’, we are in the process of changing our official name (bank a/c etc) – so, please don’t be put off by seeing references to our old name on your donation transactions.

* Our keyring offer is limited to donors in the UK donating five (5) or more bags of cement, ie. a £15 donation.

The keyrings are handmade from recycled cements bags. Supplied by Ganesha in the UK and made by Motif Ltd, a fairtrade, ethical, eco-friendly company working in Bangladesh.
