As the new year approaches, we at HaMoked are thinking about what 2019 will look like for Palestinians in the occupied territories.
Will families divided between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank be able to reunite? Will farmers be permitted to access their lands trapped behind the separation wall? Will East Jerusalemites get residency rights and be able to live in the city with their families?
In 2018 we helped some 5,000 Palestinians in these areas, and more. For many, HaMoked is the only place they can turn to and in a majority of our cases, we succeeded in ensuring people's basic rights to family life, to freedom of movement, to their property, and to access to justice.
The need for our services is great. We need your help to ensure we can respond to all those who turn to HaMoked in the coming year. Help us make 2019 a more just year for Palestinians and support our defense of those harmed by Israel's occupation policies. Every little bit helps: every donation you make will enable us to take on more cases and help more people.
