I just came back from another inspiring visit to the Masara Cafeteria! I sat with Um Hassan over tea this morning and heard all about the last few months in their kitchen. Here are a few of the highlights:
The bad news is that lately there is a water shortage in the village. Sadly this is common in the West Bank where there is a healthy aquifer but Israel controls all water resources and only allows Palestinians to use approximately 10% of the available water. (You can learn more about Palestinian water rights through the water coalition that we work with: http://ewash.org/). For the women cooking in Masara, water is an absolute necessity so we are going to help them to buy and install a second water tank on the roof of the cafeteria.
Thanks so much for your support!
