Barbara Lubin of the Middle East Children's Alliance has been raising money and bringing medicine to the children of Palestine and Iraq for nearly two decades. I am proud to live in the same bioregion with Ms. Lubin and her organization. She and MECA are now bringing a special emergency shipment of medication to Gaza (I'm not clear on how they are going to get past the Israeli blockade). She writes the following letter. Read it and click through to donate:
"As soon as I return, I will begin working on another shipment of medical aid to Gaza.
"Please make a contribution now for the children of Gaza whose health and lives are at stake.
"While we watch in horror as Israel's bombs kill and maim children in their homes and their schools, we can do something that will truly make a difference.
"Dr. El-Farra, all the people she works with in Gaza, and the thousands of families they serve, join me in asking for your support at this terrible time to help save the lives and health of thousands of children."
