Hope for gaza

The Gaza Strip has a population of 1.8M people, in the space of 140 square miles (2x the size of Washington D.C.), with an unemployment rate of 46%. TWO AREAS of need HFI/Hope for Gaza has viewed as most dire: 1) Due to the pollution and lack of ground water, UN Studies have confirmed that only 3% of public water in Gaza is consumable. 2) The power situation in Gaza is even greater an issue with shortages that can stretch to 18 hours, power alternatives to keep the well producing is an area of great concern The Gaza Strip is a little talked about HUMANITARIAN CRISIS. But Jesus continues to appear in visions and dreams to the young men. It is HFI’s determination to keep a team “at the ready” for those who are searching for the “one in their dream”.
