Join in: 50 Days of Action for MAP

15 May – 3 July – 50 Days of Action
YOUR opportunity to raise funds for MAP–Medical Aid for Palestinians

As most of you will know, Nakba Day on 15 May 2017 began a season of painful commemoration for Palestinians. 5 June is the sorry 50th anniversary of Israel’s illegal occupation of the West Bank and Gaza.
On 14 June, Palestinians in Gaza mark ten years under Israel’s stifling blockade and closure. It has been a decade punctuated by three devastating military offensives.

As MAP writes, ‘these anniversaries show why international action is more important than ever. MAP remains resolute in the pursuit of our core vision: a future where all Palestinians can access an effective, sustainable and locally-led system of healthcare and the full realisation of their rights to health and dignity.’
