Hastings Friends of Al-Mawasi

We are holding an organising meeting to plan our next steps in building links between Hastings and the Palestinian town of Al-Mawasi in Gaza

Online Zoom meeting 7.30pm 23 November 2021

Register in advance for this meeting:


We had a great introductory meeting in October to hear from the people in Al-Mawasi about the history of their region and the issues they face daily under Israeli occupation.
You can watch it on YouTube here.

Now we want to organise more joint events and hopefully work towards a formal 'twinning' between the two areas.

We have some ideas about doing a language teaching exchange, fundraising for the clinic they want to build, and arranging friendship links between schools, workplaces, and community organisations.

We also hope to host people from Al-Mawasi to visit here, as well as take up our invitation to travel to Al-Mawasi and learn more about life there first hand.

If you have more ideas, or just want to find out more about Palestine, we'd love for more people to get involved.
