Irish in Gaza…

Derek and Jenny Graham, an Irish couple living in Limassol, will soon be traveling to Gaza with the Free Gaza Movement (FMG), and will be describing their experiences on their online blog at

The couple will travel with the flotilla of FMG boats leaving from from Cyprus in May, and plan to stay in Gaza for somewhere between three to six months.

Derek plans to work on the rebuild of the port which was hit several times during the recent war, and Jenny hopes to work with several women’s and children’s groups, as well as editing and translating documents in English for some of the aid agencies.

The couple will be working as on a volunteer basis and will be relying on their own savings and donations.

A truly worthy cause, and we wish them the best of luck and success on their mission.
