Luci Lights for Rafah and Playground finish for Hebron
Dear Members and Friends of MRSCP,
We would like to ask your support for two modest but important projects this fall.
The first is to help MRSCP and the Rebuilding Alliance send a shipment of solar-powered, inflatable Luci Lights to a classroom of Rafah Children. $400 will send 40 lights that children can use to study, play or just walk outside in the night time in Gaza, where electrical power is sporadic at best. We have already raised over $260 of the needed funds, and would like to raise the remaining amount quickly so we can get the lights on the way.
You can watch a short video about this project here: Luci Lights reach Gaza Families during Ramadan!
The second is to help MRSCP and Playgrounds for Palestine-Madison complete the landscaping and site remediation at the playground that we helped install in the Tel Rumeida neighborhood of Hebron, in the West Bank. $800 will level the site, remove dangerous debris and rubble, and install a safety railing. Again, we want to move quickly as the children are anxious to be able to fully use the playground (and settlers are eager to prevent it!).
Please send checks made out to MRSCP marked “fall humanitarian projects’. If you wish, you may specify either “Luci Lights” or “Playground Finish”. Send to:
P.O. Box 5214
Madison, WI 53705
One hundred percent of your donation will go to these projects. (If we raise more, then we’ll put it into the humanitarian projects account for the next project!) Your contributions are fully tax deductible.
More details on each project are below. As always, thanks for your support!
NOTE: We have a limited number of Luci Lights for sale here in Madison; $25 buys a light for you, and a light for a child in Rafah. If you are interested in a purchase, please e-mail Donna at dwallbaum at gmail.com.
