Help us raise $12,000 (or more) to support Mental Health organisations in Gaza

Main image

This morning we woke up to find Israeli courts have ordered us to pay over $12,000 in damages to three Israeli teenagers. They have allegedly suffered emotional distress as a result of our role in Lorde cancelling her planned concert in Tel Aviv. We wrote an open letter to Lorde, asking her to respect the Palestinian-led Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, and she did. As a result we were sued for causing emotional distress.

In a few short hours we’ve been overwhelmed with offers of financial support from New Zealand and around the world. We will not be paying the court ordered amount. Instead, we would like to redirect the support extended to us back to Palestinians in need of mental health support. We’re launching this crowdfunding campaign with the hope of raising $12,000 (or more) for The Gaza Mental Health Foundation. They financially support the work of incredible grassroots organisations such as The Gaza Community Mental Health Program among others. The foundation will send donations in their entirety to organisations which are providing vital mental health support to the traumatised families of the Gaza Strip. Emotional distress is a lived reality for Palestinians in Gaza, where over half of children suffer PTSD as a result of Israeli military attacks.

Use of funds

Donations will be sent in their entirety to organisations which are providing vital mental health support to the traumatised families of the Gaza Strip. The organisations now confirmed to receive these funds are Aisha, Wefaq and Al Zahraa - Partners of Gaza Mental Health Foundation.
