June 2012 visit in Gaza

Toward the end of June a group of us went to visit some of the sick as the schools had closed at the end of May. Again we found the situation of gasoline and fuels very serious. People had electricity only six or eight hours daily. It’s had a great effect on life for everyone as water must be pumped to the roof, washing done, computers, cell phones charged and such in this short time, not to mention having no light after dark.

A visit to the port of Gaza

 June 4th, 2012 Fr. Roberto and I went down and began by a visit to the port. By the pictures you can see that there was nothing happening that day. The boats were ideal as the day before one boat was shelled and a fisherman had died.
