On October 18th, 2011, health care workers from Washington and Oregon will be going to Gaza, hosted by the Gaza Community Mental Health Program. The purpose of the trip is to learn more about the effects of ongoing war and occupation on the health of the citizens of Gaza. Maxine Fookson, a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner from Portland, will be the Oregon PSR member of this group.
On behalf of Maxine
Fookson and Ned Rosch, we invite you to a party and fundraiser to support this
trip and improve healthcare in Gaza!
Funds raised will be used to purchase health care supplies requested by our hosts in Gaza. Their request list includes toys, puppets and other supplies for child therapy centers and medications they are unable to get due to the Israeli blockade. All funds raised will go towards the purchase of health supplies requested by Gaza health clinics (not Maxine's ticket!).
When: Sunday October 2nd from 5:00 until 7:00 PM
Where: TaborSpace, 5441 SE Belmont Street in Portland
This will be a great opportunity to socialize while learning more about health issues facing the people of Gaza, and will feature delicious Middle Eastern food. Any contribution, no matter what size, will make a difference in the lives of the people of Gaza. Come even if you can just stop by for a few minutes. We hope you can join us, we'd love to see you!
