If you live in London and would like to drop off items to take to Gaza, please contact: Riaz at 07956 525 727 (Bethnal Green – close to the tube under St John’s Church)

There are also regional teams across England, Wales and Ireland – to find out who the team leader in your region is contact Viva Palestina.

Important note: All donations must be in clear plastic storage boxes and content of the box should be clearly labelled. If possible, take pictures of the aid If you know the recipient, please put their details on the box – this will make the distribution in Gaza much easier.

Support the convoy volunteers by donating:

• CAMPING SUPPLIES – Tents, sleeping bags, camping stoves, etc.
• LAPTOP COMPUTERS
• INTERNATIONALLY COMPATIBLE MOBILE PHONES
• GPS NAVIGATION SYSTEMS – Uploaded with international maps
• CB RADIOS – To install in our vehicles
• POWER CONVERTERS – Especially vehicle-to-household power outlet converters
• MEDICAL KITS

All of these items will be used, if needed, on the journey and will be left in Gaza as donations to the medical community there. Not only will they help convert our vehicles into ones that will be most efficiently used for medical purposes in Gaza, but all that can given to our medical NGO’s for use in clinics and hospitals, will be donated directly to them.

Plans for Sunday:
Due to logistical difficulties, not all of the vehicles going to Gaza will be coming into Central London for a send off on Sunday morning. Those driving the 15 ambulances dedicated to the memory of those killed during Israel’s assault on Gaza last December/January whilst on duty will attend a photo call and mini send off for supporters, families, and media outlets. This will take place on the Embankment between Westminster Bridge and Hungerford Bridge at 10am.
