In March 2012 Israel increased attacks in Gaza along the buffer zone in the north. The organization Elmahaba and Elsalam (Society for Peace and Love) requested funds to provide psychological support to one hundred women and children four times a week as a result of the trauma experienced after the recent attacks. Funds will be used to hire a social worker and psychologist and to hold recreational activities with the children.
Elmahaba and Elsalam is an organization focused on serving women and children in Bait Hanoon, North Gaza. This area is very close to the border of Israel and around ninety five percent of the families here lost their incomes after Israel prevented people from working in Israel.
