REP FROM STUDENTS’ PARLIAMENT SPEAKING ABOUT CLEAN WATER. PHOTO BY AFAQ JADEEDA ASSOCIATION.In January 2008, the Middle East Children’s Alliance (MECA) and our Gaza partner, Afaq Jadeeda Association, completed the first Maia Project installation at the UN Bureij Boys’ School in Gaza. With funding from the Alalusi Foundation,  we purchased and installed a water purification and desalination unit and renovated the outdoor drinking fountains and faucets at the school.

I LOVE YOU MECA.” PHOTO BY MOHAMMED MAJDALAWISince the formal launching of the Maia Project in September 2009, MECA and Afaq Jadeeda have installed units at additional UN schools and kindergartens throughout the Gaza Strip. Thanks to the generosity of MECA supporters and groups around the country who are organizing for the Maia Project, 68,000 children in Gaza now have access to clean drinking water! The UN schools are overcrowded and students come in shifts so each unit provides clean drinking water to all of these children.
