Field visits for Micro projects that supported by Viva Palestina Malaysia.
Since 2009 Viva Palestina Malaysia supported more than 80 of micro projects in Gaza Strip by giving small loans for poor families, these projects changed the life for benefited families and increased their incomes and gave them the chanced for depending on themselves instead of depending of humanitarian helps.
Where in 2017 unemployment rate reached to 41.7% in general and among youth it reached 66.8%, poverty rate 65%, deep poverty 30%, the rate of lack and absent in food security 72%, the huge increasing in the number of graduated students per year, all of these reasons guide us to work more and focus on supporting these kinds of micro projects by providing work chances through enabling unemployed persons from start micro projects by using micro loans system (Halal).
Only try to draw smiles :)
Thank you Viva Palestina Malaysia for giving us this chance.
