    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    As a medical doctor I was last in Gaza in 2012 as part of a medical aid convoy. At the time, many children were malnourished- most of the water was unfit for human consumption; children and adults became ill frequently due to the high levels of toxins and pollution in the water.

    Fast forward 5 years...and nothing much has changed- except for the situation being even worse.

    Over 90% of the water from Gaza’s sole aquifer is unfit to drink. Contagions in the water are causing disease and health disorders, such as renal failure, high blood pressure and osteoporosis, while most families are using up to a third of their income to buy water from unregulated vendors. Sadly, this is also often contaminated.

    Human Appeal have already provided clean water for over 200,000 Palestinian schoolchildren. Now the aim is to build a water desalination plant on the Gaza coastline for the entire population. The plant will provide over 600,000 people with safe water, whilst providing employment for the local community.

    No human being should have to go without safe, clean water. With your help, I want to help provide life-giving water to those in need. Please help me deliver clear water solutions to those who need it most. Please donate whatever you can!
    Thank you for your help.in advance!
