On Wednesday February 18 in the afternoon trucks of the second Convoy for Peace arrived in Gaza.
So it was 30 pallets of covers, warm clothes and specific supplies for the children who could be distributed by the Christian parish of Gaza. This action allowed to bring a material support to 16.000 children, innocent victims of the conflict.
Today Gaza's population is made up with 60% of young people less than 18 years old in a city where the recent confrontations destroyed 10% of the dwellings sometimes by whole districts and where the infrastructures were hardly touched leaving the inhabitants often without electricity or water.

Organised by Hommes de Parole Foundation in partnership with the International Association of Human Values, the Fifth World Congress of Imams and Rabbis for Peace will be held in Bangalore (India), during 2015, at the invitation of His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, a leader of non-violence in India.
The Third Congress took decisions on the promotion of a peace culture in Israel and Palestine and on the inclusion of women and young people in future meetings.
The Fifth World Congress of Imams and Rabbis for Peace will implement these commitments. This congress will bring together representatives of the great spiritual traditions, and leave ample space for women and young people.
