Walk to Palestine: Activist to walk 5,000 kilometers
Al Jazeera News, 11 Feb 2018
"A 25-year-old Swedish activist has commenced a treacherous walk from Sweden to Palestine, to raise awareness about human rights violations in the occupied territories. Benjamin Ladraa says he was so moved by a three-week trip to Palestine last April that he decided to "tell the world about the situation in Palestine". "I was shocked by what I saw there, seeing all the walls, soldiers walking along the streets carrying M-60 machine guns. I heard stories about 300 children in prisons, rapes in homes."

AFOPA Blog Post, 23 Feb 2018
"In January 2018, the Australian Friends of Palestine Association partnered with the Palestine Children's Relief Fund (PCRF) to provide plumbing and sanitation equipment for Al Nasir pediatric hospital in Gaza city. Al Nasir Hospital is the main neonatal hospital in Gaza and has been impacted by the high level of salination in the water supply in Gaza, which impacts patient care, infection control and sanitation for patients and staff there."
