Hello and Welcome to Bringing Hope to Gaza!


As we all know, Gaza has been under the Israeli siege for so long - the latest "war" is over 4 months old now with about 30,000 innocent civilians...a third of whom are children! Worldwide people have realized the truth of the situation and calling for a ceasefire and freedom for Palestinians.

And as a result of the these terrible times , the humanitarian situation is dire. Access to food, drinkable water and much more is almost non-existent.

This is Gaza

our Raison d'être

Terrible things happen around the world every day. But unfortunately when it comes to Palestinians...and especially Gazans... most of the world doesn't realize the gravity of the situation for 75 years because western mainstream media is especially complicit in keeping the world in the dark about the truth of the situation there... as it is now and as it has been for decades. Youtube tries to stop the truth getting out by making videos about Palestinians difficult if not impossible to view. The link I post above is a good example. Try copying and pasting this into your browser for a playlist of all our videos. Thank goodness that at least social and alternative media is getting the truth out.

It is our duty as human beings to help those in need. Gazans cannot raise funds on their own, they must have the help of individuals on the outside - whether next door or on the other side of the world. If there was ever a time for true humanity, this is it. Let us Stand With Gaza. Let us show these good people that some us know what is happening and want to make a difference. That's where Bringing Hope to Gaza comes in... My name is Wendy and I am a Canadian who wants to help the people of Gaza in some small way. When I became aware of a young man named Khalil Ibrahim who lives there and is desperate to help his fellow Gazans, I was so impressed and touched I decided to help him. It's not often we see such selfless young people on our side of the world. Our campaigns are ongoing fundraising efforts and sometimes specific. We have a lot of hope and Khalil and and his team have tons of energy. But we can't do it without your help.

Standing with the people of Gaza is the right thing to do. Now more than ever with constant bombing, electricity and water shortages. Gazans are suffering now more than ever while the world continues to largely turn a blind eye... Please help us to help them. If you are not comfortable donating through this page, I get it. You can donate via Paypal or send me a message and make an offline donation if you prefer.

We always document where all money received from you helps the most with photos and videos. Every dollar goes to donations - we do not keep any of the money raised. Promise! We have many projects that we have implemented over the past years and we are working hard to help as many as possible. Please contribute and share with friends and family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

One Donation: Twice the Impact - Always

100% of your donations is used to provide assistance to the poor of Gaza in the form of clothing, food, medicine and HOPE, all these things are in short supply in a snip of land which is home to approximately two million refugees most of whom are now depending on aid. Your donations provide food, clothing, medicines and more to those in need. All purchases are made in Gaza where possible so this puts food on the tables of local farmers and the families of small business owners in there who struggle to make ends meet every day of their lives.

Where your donations go ...

The need is never ending and conditions are only getting worse with each passing day. Your donations mean the world to Gaza. We are in this together and couldn't do what we do without you. Thank you. Shukran jazilan. Al_salaamu alaykum

Khalil Ibrahim...whose tireless energy helps so many in Gaza.

Standing with the people of Gaza is the right thing to do. In this campaign we will be preparing and distributing food parcels as well as nutritious ready-to-eat meals with our second Ramadan Kitchen project. Our campaign also seeks to fulfill Muslims' obligations for Zakat, Sadaqat and finally Eid al-Fitr clothes for children. Here are photos from last year's Ramadan project. Please help us make it even better this year!

Bringing Hope to Gaza's accomplishments so far... take a look at our photos and videos below! We try hard to stretch every dollar donated as far as possible...

I had to take a break from fundraising last year due to family problems but I have to start again... I can't remain silent, I can't stand by anymore...

Thank you for your consideration and generosity from Khalil Ibrahim who is on the ground in Gaza. He founded Bringing Hope to Gaza 8 years ago despite his young age and spearheads all efforts there. I am proud to know him - if only on the internet.

And from me, Wendy Forrest, who is grateful to live in Canada and have the ability to help those less fortunate than me in some small way. I am not Muslim and not religious but you don't have to be to stand up for Gaza.
