Our Spring Update from Deheishe Camp

Hello Friends,

We have some small update for you! Our plan was to prepare a list of long-term achievements. However, the challenging situation in Palestine, lead us to launch a group of urgent emergency responses, and some other pre-planned activities

First, Ramadan Kareem and Happy Eid!

As you know, the ongoing violence is increasing in Gaza, the massive loss of life and infrastructure have continued to intensify. At the same time, the situation in the West Bank is also intensifying; violence, closures, demolitions and loss of live are happening on daily basis.

So, at Karama this year we could not do much compared of our yearly Ramadan and Eid activities where we try to host discharge activities for children in the camp. This year our priority was refugee families who are now struggling to put food on the table with the closures and restriction on Palestinian workers forced by the occupation, many have lost their sources of income. We performed to emergency activities to support these families, through your continuous support: 

First, we cooked daily meals for Iftar and distributed on the most disadvantaged families.

Second, we made a coupon for our production unit customers, who can now get a discount on their purchases and some received a present on the number of their purchases.

This small activity makes a huge difference for families of four and five members, who need to save their cash, especially with the rising market prices!

                                                         Some Needed Renovations!

Our center needed some small renovations and cleaning up after the cold winter season, we are also preparing our kitchen for upcoming training activities for refugee women in the camp in cooperation with a local organization. We took this opprtunity to employ some workers who have lost their jobs for seven months now to help us make the needed renovation, and as you can see with the support of their passionate energies, we managed to make real needed changes. 

Some of the main renovation we started working on is building a small water well next to our kitchen, our kitchen is connected to a small outside garden which we plan to renovate into a small playground for refugee, as the camp is already limited in safe spaces for children and has no green spaces for children to play in.

The well will also be used as a water reserve in case of emergencies as the land is surrounded by two main sources of service for the refugee in the camp which are he UNRWA clinic and the local public serves committee who always need water. With the water scarcity in the camp due to the control of the occupation forces on the source of water and limiting the amount of water reaching the camp. 

                                                                                                                                                                            Hope fully by the end of next month we will have a fully functioning kitchen and training space where participants can make delicious sweets, meals, and teach others! 

 

Many thanks for your support!
