We are now more than halfway to providing another water filter system to a school in Rafah, Palestine.
If you have contributed to this project, thank you.
If you have not yet contributed, please consider an end-of-year donation to help us raise the balance of the $16,000 needed to provide clean, safe water for 2,200 students at the the Al-Shuka Preparatory School.
This is the fifth Maia water filter project funded by MRSCP and other citizens of Madison.
At least 95 percent of the groundwater in Gaza is unfit for drinking, cooking, washing, or bathing. Read about the causes and consequences of the Gaza water crisis.
You can donate in three ways:
- Contribute online through MECA. A small service fee is taken from the donation.
- Mail a check to MRSCP with the note “water” to:
P.O. Box 5214
Madison, WI 53705
100 percent of the donation goes to the project.
- Purchase Holy Land Olive Oil from MRSCP. $3 of every bottle sold goes to the project. The oil comes in two sizes: 750 ml for $25 and 500 ml for $20. Six-packs are also available at a discount. Contact veena.brekke at gmail.com.
As always, many thanks for your help in providing clean, safe water to kids in Gaza. All contributions are tax deductible, and MRSCP or MECA will send you a receipt.
