On the 28th August I will be travelling to the West Bank along with a group of students from Liverpool Hope University, to spend time with families and community groups who are affected by the conflict with Israel.

We will be meeting people who have been disabled by the conflict, spending time at DCi Palestine and working with women and children in the Tulkarem refugee camp. 

My friends and family know that working with those who are facing injustice is very important to me. 

Our department emphasises the importance of working in solidarity with those facing oppression, both in the UK and globally.This visit will give us a greater understanding of the challenges facing Palestinians under what is effectively an Apartheid regime. We hope to raise awareness of the conflict from a Palestinian perspective. 

Having paid for my trip I am now looking to raise money to donate to the refugee projects we will be working with and would be very grateful if you, my friends, could support me with this. I will be taking this money directly to the projects, rather than going through an NGO. 

"I have been to the Occupied Palestinian Territory, and I have witnessed the racially segregated roads and housing that reminded me so much of the conditions we experienced in South Africa under the racist system of Apartheid. I have witnessed the humiliation of Palestinian men, women, and children made to wait hours at Israeli military checkpoints routinely when trying to make the most basic of trips to visit relatives or attend school or college, and this humiliation is familiar to me and the many black South Africans who were corralled and regularly insulted by the security forces of the Apartheid government."
