Made by Atfaluna Society for Deaf Children, Gaza, founded in 1992 to improve the quality of life for deaf persons in the Gaza Strip. Literally thousands of deaf children and their families are served by Atfaluna (Arabic, our children) through deaf education, audiology, special therapy, income generating programmes and vocational training. Atfaluna Crafts, established in 1998 provides essential income to more than 350 very needy people and their families, despite the practical difficulties that the Israeli siege imposes on obtaining raw materials and exporting goods. Their vision is a future where deaf persons will reach their full potential in the community. Our grants: 2009 for some repair work after the bombing during “Operation Cast Lead” when almost all windows and frames were destroyed; 2010 contributing to a program which enabled some of the artisans to obtain glasses much needed especially when working on black material; 2012, $3000 for materials for home workers. www.atfaluna.net
