Palestinians in Italy send blankets to Gaza

Dec. 30, 2013 10:06 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 31, 2013 7:33 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – The Palestinian community in Italy in cooperation with the Union of Palestinian Women announced Monday a fundraising campaign to support the people of Gaza.

The campaign “Blanket for Gaza” was announced in a news conference at offices of the embassy of Palestine in Rome.

Palestinian ambassador to Italy Mai al-Kalia said the “Palestinian people are subjected to all kinds of racism under Israeli occupation.”

She highlighted that a winter storm which hit Palestine recently caused huge damage in the Gaza Strip adding more suffering to children, women and elderly people.

The goal of the fundraiser is to collect money to buy blankets and sheets to be shipped to the Gaza Strip to help residents during winter.
