Repair Gaza: Help repair and rebuild the lives and work of our Glia team.

To support Gaza's recovery, we're raising funds for our Gaza staff to rebuild their lives post-war. We also aim to purchase solar panels, 3D printing supplies, and building materials, and hire staff for the reconstruction of our Gaza office.
