Artwork by children in Gaza will be on display in the Main Meeting Room of the Corvallis Public Library for the month of November.
Sign up for the Palestinian cooking workshop on Saturday, November 13th, at the Corvallis Multicultural Literacy Center, 11am to 1pm. $20 donation suggested. Please make checks payable to MECA (Middle East Children's Alliance).
And take a look at this Barometer article about the rap artist, Khaki Mustafa, a 24 year old Palestinian-American. The article states Khaki "is performing at the Corvallis Multicultural Literacy Center during the Palestinian Cultural Festival on Nov. 12. There are no fees to enjoy the show, and donations will go toward buying a water purification system for a United Nations-sponsored kindergarten in Gaza, Palestine."
In addition to celebrating Palestinian culture, this weekend is also about raising $4000 for the Middle East Children's Alliance (MECA) Maia Project. This is the cost to install a water purification and desalination unit at Ashbal Palestine, a kindergarten serving 165 students in the Al-Zaitoun neighorhood of Gaza City. Read more about MECA and the Maia Project here.
