Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

NGO using technologies, renewable energy and humanitarian aid on the Gaza Strip and beyond

2016-03-30

"The power source in the hospital is solar. We have received data from our work in the Palestinian territory lately and thanks to this facility in 2014, there has been an increased of 174 percent hospital patients, while in 2015 they grew even more by 228 percent.” 

Francesca Vitalini is the Press Agent for Sunshine4Palestine. She has been with the company since its inception in January of 2013. Francesca is one of several remote staff members dedicated to Sunshine4Palestine's mission.

Even though Sunshine4Palestine is still in its infancy as an organization, it has already begun to amass some notable causes. Sunshine4Palestine is able to raise funds by hosting musical concerts throughout Rome.

Health care services, sustainable water and solar energy are among some of the initiatives that Sunshine4Palestine has developed.

"They are young professionals, surely this is one of the most characteristic aspects of Sunshine for Palestine. President Barbara Capone is a young Italian researcher who works in Vienna and the rest are less than 40-years-old, so the whole team is full of young professionals working in different fields.”

The Jenin Charitable Hospital in Gaza is perhaps one of their most remarkable feats to date. Prior to the installation of the solar power panels, the hospital staff could only work four hours a day. Today, it is the first hospital in Gaza to run on an independent electric grid.

Both the Gaza strip and in the West Bank have very limited access to water, with little or no continuous energy supply to the drained aquifers that have been contaminated by sea water. 

Another distinctive proposal is the "Tree of Light” incentive in which in a solar tree, with Photo-voltaic Panels as leaves, will produce enough energy to light up to half a mile of the main street in the refugee camp with 50 WATS worth of LED lights

"We will create in collaboration with ACS and  Leader of Light in Italy; home gardens, urban gardens where the energy comes from a portion of photo-voltaic installations.”

It is an organization that literally and figuratively goes off the grid when it comes to innovation and technology for the betterment of societies like those along the Gaza strip. Sunshine4Palestine is making fast strides in the Middle East and they only hope to expand their network on a global scale.
