participation in the initiative "Ship to Gaza" (Athens 2010)

The project "Ship to Gaza" saw the creation of an international fleet delivering building materials to Gaza in order to help restore buildings destroyed by the bombarding. Our idea was to encourage Palestinians to use domestic soil in order to construct adobe bricks for repairs and new buildings. In collaboration with another NGO “Engineers of the Earth” we sent out a mould of adobe and a text translated in Arabic with guidelines. The text was compiled according to the outcomes of the workshop held in the Polytechnic School of Athens during two consecutive weekends.

The "Fleet of Freedom" consisting of the boats "Sfendoni" and "Free Mediterranean" sailed from Pireaus on May 25th 2010 but did not manage to moor at the port of Gaza due to attack by the Israeli forces.
