On International Women's Day the Freedom Flotilla Coalition (FFC) launched our latest project, the Women's Boat to Gaza. We met in Italy and FFC members from around the world agreed upon a sailing date of mid September with the goal of reaching Gaza within a couple of weeks. We were honoured to participate in many events in Italy, and have received great interest from around the world. Palestinian women and their families in Gaza are eager to greet us at the shore when we arrive.
There are many steps between now and mid September and this project relies solely on donations from you (its supporters). Canadian Boat to Gaza has committed to raise $50,000 to cover our share as a major partner in this project, the total cost of which is ~250,000 Euros. We are off to a good start but we need your help to make this project a reality.
Our immediate target across Canada is to raise $20,000 between now and and the end of April for the plans to stay on track.
