In September 2017, Joining Hands, a group of Bay Area women who support projects for women and children in Palestine, held an event to raise funds to sponsor a classroom at the Atfaluna School for the Deaf in Gaza in loving memory of David Halaby. David Halaby was born in Jerusalem, Palestine and was a long-time friend and supporter of MECA.

Many thanks to David’s family and friends who contributed to sponsor this classroom for the children of Gaza in his memory and to David for his big heart and his dedication to helping other Palestinians.
