Why support the Palestine Foundation Campaign to raise funds for potable water in Palestine?
According to the Organization for World Peace (OWP), Palestinians continue to suffer water shortages since the beginning of the occupation in 1948. Israel controls and exploits major water resources in the region, including the Jordan River, the Mountain Aquifer, and the Coastal Aquifer.
As a result, Palestinians are experiencing severe water shortages and are forced to purchase water from Israel at high prices. This has led to economic and health hardship for many Palestinians -- and this is unacceptable.
Let’s send a message by walking together on March 19th.
