17 January Dear David & Yousef,
It is great to write in this conditions, I'm writing quickly before cutting the electricity.
Re. the emergency projects
1.The bought disposables by $10,000
2. The reliefs, 125 families started from this morning receiving coupons by NIS150 for each (total of $5000) from a determined supermarket to buy the essential needs. The traders were very cooperative -they will wait weeks to receive payment. This the first stage, another $5000 will be in different scheme during the next days, I will follow with all.
3. The $10,000 cash money, I coordinate with some people in Jabalia camp and preparing list of beneficiaries. This will take some days so there are another charities do the same thing and I follow with them.
Please, for any notes call me by mobile.
