To overcome the cutting off of communication and the Internet for Gazans, the “Connecting Gaza” initiative was launched, which receives donated ESIMs and delivers them to those in the Gaza Strip who need them.

If you need an ESIM or know someone in Gaza in need, please send to any of the accounts mentioned in the following posts and you will be provided with one:

Global Conscience Convoy

On November 7, the head of the Egyptian Journalists Syndicate issued an urgent call to all forces of freedom and humanity in the world, including international relief and human rights organizations, public intellectuals, journalists, moral leaders and citizens, to come together and call peacefully for:

  1. Ending the war.
  2. Opening the Rafah Crossing, for all humanitarian aid (food, water, medication, and fuel) to enter sustainably, and for an unconditional exit for the critically wounded.
  3. Allowing medical, relief, humanitarian and journalistic crews to enter Gaza.
  4. Supporting the Palestinian people in standing against Israel’s expulsion plans.

From the 7th of November until yesterday, Sunday, November 19, the convoy was able to mobilize (delegations from 65 countries, from Japan to America and from South Africa to Norway, 139 organizations, 224 medical professionals, 133 journalists, 19 public figures, in addition to hundreds of citizens).

There was a specific date for the convoy to set off from Cairo towards the Rafah crossing, but it was postponed due to the inability to obtain the necessary security permits until now. Therefore, the organizers call on all of us to exert all possible efforts to ensure that this convoy can happen. The organizers published some ways in which people and groups can support the convoy’s movement, which is:

  • Mobilize your community, politicians and groups to join and support the convoy action.
  • Send letters, write, blog, and refer to the Egyptian authorities (Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs – Egyptian Cabinet – Egyptian Parliament – Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi) to allow obtaining the necessary security permits for heading towards the Rafah crossing.
  • You can post a video supporting the convoy and/or expressing your intention to participate in it.
  • You can also post a photo with the note: “Let #GlobalConscienceConvoy go, #OpenRafahCrossing” on Twitter and Instagram.
  • Other things you can do are listed here: https://globalconscienceconvoy.org/help-from-afar

For any inquiries or suggestions, please email the convoy at: [email protected] 

Check the convoy’s website: https://globalconscienceconvoy.org/ 

As well as Twitter and Instagram for constant updates.
