PayPal refuses to serve Palestinians in the West Bank & Gaza, but it's serving companies & homes in illegal Israeli settlements. This discrimination needs to stop. Tell PayPal to make its services open to all Palestinians. #PayPalestine #PayPal4Palestine

We agree w/ @worldneighbors: Local people are the experts when it comes to knowing what’s needed to change lives in their own communities. That’s why we invest in people experiencing poverty around the world. #localization @MarieClarkeAA @devex

"People are so consumed with the idea that this has to be a political issue that it becomes easy to turn a blind eye and ignore the human rights abuses and violations that have been carried out against Palestinians." Three months later, it still matters.

Today marks 3 months since the Trump administration moved the US embassy to Jerusalem and recognized it as the capital of Israel. We remember the Palestinians in #Gaza who were killed that day. We stand with those who continue to fight for a #FreePalestine. #RestInPower

Palestinian fishermen are protesting the Israeli blockade that's restricting #Gaza’s fishing boundaries from six nautical miles to three. They staged a protest on water while others walked along the coast demanding Israel to #EndTheSiege. #GreatReturnMarch https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2018/04/gaza-protest-latest-updates-180406092506561.html

The Israeli blockade on #Gaza makes it difficult for Palestinians to get access to healthcare. Treatment for more than 8,200 cancer patients in Gaza has been put on hold because chemo drugs have been banned from entering Gaza. #EndTheSiege
