8 June 2021

Just a few weeks ago, an idea was born out of the suffering that Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, Jerusalem and the West Bank. As justice loving South Africans many of us were appalled. The bombs rained down and an appeal was sent out from the children of Gaza to the children of South Africa.

As a result the Salaam Foundation #LemonAid campaign for ambulances and other basic necessities came to fruition. Children, support by their parents, teachers, siblings and guardians rallied to their #LemonAid stands and popped up all across our beautiful land. At close to R1 million per ambulance, it was a monumental task ahead.

As the weekends passed and contributions began to come in, slowly but surely, we saw the final destination ahead. One ambulance took form and we believed we had reached our goal. And then a second began to flicker in the distance and we realised the power of the children and the brightness of the future. As we waltzed into this last weekend we concluded on an amazing three ambulances fully funded.

The best part of it all is that there is some change left as well. As Salaam Foundation we have engaged with our ground implementation partners and they have identified a number of possible ways to contribute towards the reconstruction phase that has now started.

Thousands have lost homes and their basic survival items such as pots, pans, stoves and other living utensils. We will help here as well, insha Allah. Salaam Foundation, as an organisation focused on sustainable development, has also requested that some of the funding be used in the distraught farming communities of Gaza.

In this way we will expand the funds that have come in over and above the funding for three ambulances, to sustainable growth and food production.

We want to thank all who have participated. From the small donor to the largest donor. From youngest to the oldest. We have exceeded our own expectations and have even been given the opportunity to assist in ways we had not envisioned from the start. May you all be truly rewarded and may you always be part of the Salaam Foundation family.

 

28 May 2021

This has been an absolutely phenomenal 10 days. From setting a target well beyond our reach, to activating men, women and children across the country and bringing joy to the people of Palestine through the Ambulance and basic necessities campaign.

Despite the death as a result of the Israeli attacks, followed by the emotional trauma of emerging into a freshly ruined Gaza City, our solidarity, support and campaign has been acknowledged by Palestinians.

So the effort continues and below you will find a list of venues, events and people in support of the #LemonAID for this upcoming weekend.

19 May 2021

On the 10 May 2021, the Israeli occupation state unleased a barrage of attacks on to the Gaza Strip, a piece of Palestinian land just 40km x 10km in size.

Resistance groups in the tiny enclave fired rockets into Israel after Israel refused to suspend its attacks on Muslim worshippers in the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem and the forced removal and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from an area called Sheikh Jarrah.

As a result of the barbaric Israeli attacks, 219 Palestinians have been massacred, including 63 children. Many have been entire families wiped out. A further 1500 have been injured. As a result of the Palestinian response, 12 Israelis including 2 children have died and 300 have been hurt.

At least 50 schools have been damaged in Gaza and over 50 000 people are now homeless as Israel continues to attack residential towers forcing people to flee.

Salaam Foundation is coordinating the #LemonAid project for humanitarian relief from South Africa to Gaza. We have already assigned funding for wheelchairs, walking sticks, foldable walking aids, fresh water, hot meals, and the huge target of being able to fund an entire ambulance or maybe a few.

The love for Palestinian people, and those who support their cause for justice is borne out by the amazing response to the campaign by South African people.
