We're still working on it!

Dear Friend and Supporter,

It's been some time since our last update, and we wanted to fill you on what's happening at femLENS these days.

While we are still fundraising and looking for grants to reach our goal of giving photography workshops to women in Gaza and then exhibiting that work in various places, we have started working on getting permission to enter Gaza.

Gaza is not like any other place we know of on earth. You cannot go online and find a simple visa application that you do online or take to the nearest emabassy. Gaza doesn't have an embassy, and very few people can navigate to an application form for a permit to enter Gaza. Some of those people are journalists, others are international humanitarian organisation workers. For everyone else - Gaza is a no-go zone. 

We knew that it would be hard though, and have already found many willing people who are helping us navigate the obstacles put infront of us. And this makes us feel that our work there will be that more meaningful and important. Your support for this project makes us feel all this effort is important too. We thank you for that!

We hope that with our next update we'll be able to share some notes from the field! Meanwhile, please keep sharing our work with others who you think would be interested to know about it.

Best wishes,

Kate
