Support Palestinian Women's Embroidery Cooperative

My name is Amy, and I am raising funds for Women in Hebron and the 150 women who earn their livelihood through the cooperative.  The money will be used to financially support the women in Women in Hebron during the pandemic.  Will you contribute $5, $10 or $20?  Your gift will help the cooperative survive until tourism and sales return to Hebron.
53656150_1614918367926653_r.jpegWomen in Hebron  is a non-profit, fair trade women's embroidery cooperative in Palestine.  The cooperative was established so that women in the Hebron district of the West Bank would have the resources to provide for themselves and their families through the production and sales of Palestinian handicraft items.  Most of their sales were the result of the tourism in the Old City, where Women in Hebron has had a presence since 2005.  However, because of the pandemic, the tourism and the sales have disappeared.  

Will you please donate to help the 150 women and their families that benefit from the work of the cooperative?  All funds will be sent to Women in Hebron to be distributed to the women of the cooperative.

If you would like to support but do not have the funds, please share this campaign on social media.  If you are in the U.S. and would like to purchase items from Women in Hebron, please reach out to me as I am organizing bulk purchases throughout the year.

Thank you for your time, consideration and support.  Your donations will sustain the women of the cooperative until the pandemic is done.

In Love and Solidarity,

Amy

**I have known about Women in Hebron since 2011.  In these last ten years, I have volunteered my creative work (illustration and graphic design) and have made several bulk orders.  I decided to volunteer for this fundraiser because I believe that the cooperative is one of the best examples of the strength and ingenuity of women in the face of difficult and oppressive systems.  Please join me in keeping the cooperative alive!
