What We Do

Advocacy and Awareness

From female-led exchange visits in the West Bank, to supporting the Russell Tribunal on human rights abuses against Palestinians, Interpal continues its advocacy projects to raise awareness of the worsening situation for Palestinians. Interpal’s aim is to continue to build a durable foundation for Palestinian human rights.

ADVOCACY AND AWARENESS
As one of the leading British charities working on the Palestine issue, we recognise the importance of increasing awareness of the injustice suffered by Palestinians, promoting Palestinian voices and supporting advocacy that benefits people on the ground. Interpal has supported an array of projects that highlight various issues. From supporting campaigns tackling ethnic cleansing to funding school competitions; Interpal has been at the heart of raising awareness for the plight of the Palestinian people.
PROJECT PREVIEW
BEARING WITNESS IN THE GAZA STRIP

In February 2013, a cross party delegation of MPs and staff visited the Gaza Strip to bear witness to the situation on the ground. Jeremy Corbyn MP, Philip Hollobone MP and Sarah Teather MP visited Interpal projects, met with beneficiaries and spoke to our field office about the needs and interventions carried out by Interpal. We organised the visit to highlight the dire situation caused by the ongoing siege and violence, as well as to allow British MPs to speak directly with Palestinians and hear about their lives.
