Fresh appeal ahead of Derry to Gaza convoy

Published on Tuesday 10 April 2012 12:17 Derry to Gaza is embarking on its third delivery of much needed aid to the Palestinian people.
A spokesperson said: “On previous convoys, we have successfully delivered an ambulance with thousands of pounds worth of medical equipment and a wheelchair access minibus with educational equipment and winter clothing.
“We would like to sincerely thank the people of Derry and the North West for all their generosity both financially and practically. It still amazes us the generosity of the Derry people. On this mission we will attempt to deliver essential construction equipment to rebuild homes, clinics, schools etc., We will be departing on April 22.
“Despite Israeli propaganda, the people of Gaza are still dependant on the UN for the basics just to survive. Many Palestinians are still living in tents this winter, their homes having been destroyed by Israeli bulldozers or bombed by warplanes.”
Anyone who can help the group either by donations of construction equipment can contact them at 07763155681 or 07857974059. The group also has a facebook page
