Sharon Woods is from Liverpool in the UK. She has worked in a variety of industries. Presently she is working voluntarily with the homeless and disadvantaged in her hometown. “ until 2015. „I had no real understanding of what life was like in Gaza.“

A friend on Facebook happened to share a post about Palestine, when I showed an interest he patiently explained to me how the siege on Gaza impacted on Palestinian life. I then began to do my own research and was horrified to learn of the extreme poverty people were enduring. 

I was seeing children with no shoes on their feet, inadequate clothing and families living in appalling conditions that consisted of houses that had been badly damaged in the 2014 war and never rebuilt.  Also a lack of basics like electricity, food and clean drinking water. I was appalled at the inhumane way these people were being treated and also enraged at the fundamental injustice of the treatment of Palestinians in their homeland.

I didn’t know what I could do to help until I was fortunate enough to come into contact with Janine Abauyyash the founder of WWR-Help e.V. who invited me to become a member of the WWR team.

What I especially like about WWR is that it helps the most in need the poorest of the poor, the people who have no voice because they have no access to the internet so they cannot appeal directly for help themselves, for them there is no way of reaching the outside world.

Each of our projects is carefully thought out and discussed at length with our contacts in Gaza so that donations are utilized in the best way for those in the greatest need. Working with the WWR team has been a humbling experience for me, it has also restored my faith in human nature. Although we live in different parts of the world we are bound together through our desire and determination to alleviate the suffering in Gaza and with your Donations we can achieve this.
