Week 30: Family Unification Online Gathering 2023

Tuesday, July 25 6pm Palestine

On July 25, 2023, Tarek al-Zoughbi of Wi’am talked to us about the arbitrary barriers that Israel puts in place to keep Palestinian families apart.

More about our guests:

Tarek al-Zoughbi is currently studying in Malta and plans to return to help with Wi’am soon.

Wi’am: The Palestinian Conflict Transformation Center is a grassroots civil society organization based in Bethlehem. In Arabic, “wi’am” means “cordial relationships,” and developing relationships is the essence of our mission. Wi’am helps resolve disputes within the Palestinian community at the grassroots level by implementing the traditional Arab form of mediation, known as Sulha, along with Western models of conflict transformation. They have programs that empower children, youth, women and men, addressing the psychological and physiological consequences of long-term conflict.

You can find Wi’am on their website at http://www.alaslah.org/ and on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/wiamcenter/ and YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/wiamcentre
