KIWI TEAM HAS ARRIVED SAFELY
Our Kiwi Team to Gaza has arrived safely in London. Tomorrow the six of them will pick up their aid vehicles.
You can send your best wishes to Roger Fowler (captain), Chris van Ryn (vice-captain), Julie Webb-Pullman, Pat O’Dea, Mousa Taher and Hone Fowler.
Just email your goodwill messages to firstname.lastname@example.org and they will be forwarded to our team.

LAST LAP OF FUNDING MARATHON
Kia Ora Gaza is now on the last lap of our fundraising marathon. Big thanks to all the generous people who have donated.
Over the last two months we’ve raised $85,000 of our $100,000 target.
We urgently need that last $15,000, or more, in order to build an Emergency Reserve Fund.
DONATE NOW TO EMERGENCY FUND
Our Emergency Reserve Fund will help our brave Kiwi volunteers get out of almost certain dangers and difficulties on their hazardous road to Gaza.
Please donate NOW to our Emergency Reserve Fund. Go to kiaoragaza.net to see how to donate.
AND IF A SURPLUS IS LEFT OVER?
What happens if, through the generosity of Kiwis like yourself, a surplus is left over in our Kia Ora Gaza account?
That surplus will stay safely in our bank account until the following Gaza aid mission, when it will be used to kickstart that next humanitarian convoy. All your donations will find their way to Gaza to help its suffering citizens.
Kia Ora Gaza is a Charitable Trust registered under the Charitable Trusts Act 1957. All our accounts are audited by a professional auditor (donating his services free) who is independent of our Board of Trustees.
INVITATION TO KIWI TEAM LINKUP
This coming Tuesday Kia Ora Gaza is holding a public meeting at Auckland University.
Here we plan to hold a skype linkup with our six-person Kiwi Team, who will by then be three days into their historic mission to Gaza. While this skype linkup is not certain, because of technical difficulties, we will do our best to make it happen.
Aucklanders are invited to our meeting: start 5pm on Tuesday, 21 September, at the Cap n’ Gown Lounge, adjacent to the university quad.
For more precise directions, email Michael Lai at email@example.com
I hope to see you Tuesday,
