Rebuilding the Nasrallah Family's home in Gaza as a first step to build momentum worldwide to stop demolition bulldozers, so that children can sleep safely and peacefully in their homes at night.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
In Rafah Gaza, Human Rights Watch found the IDF made 16,000 people homeless over the past 4 years, regardless of whether their homes posed a genuine military threat. Though the Israeli government plans to redeploy its Gaza troops, thousands of homes remain at risk. This project invites the world to help rebuild the home of the Nasrallah family as a first step to realize the intention of American Rachel Corrie, who was killed standing her ground before the bulldozer sent to demolish their home.
How will this project solve this problem?
Using house party fundraisers, the project engages the world to rebuild the Nasrallah home. We have already raised funds to purchase a new plot of land. As we build, the story of the Nasrallah and Corrie families will touch hearts and open minds
Potential Long Term Impact
Through this home, a movement ending home demolitions will grow. With the end of demolitions, families rebuild, the economy grows, and children can sleep without fear. As Palestinians and Israelis join these efforts, a just peace can begin.
