AQSA SYARIF’S MISSIONS
Since its inception (2010), Aqsa Syarif has always tried to enter Gaza to send its humanitarian aids. In fact, entering Gaza has been the primary focus of all humanitarian agencies at that time due to the prolonged Israeli blockade (since 2007) and following the ferocious 22 days attacks by Israeli army (Dec 2008-Jan 2009) which turned the humanitarian condition in the coastal enclave from worst to an absolute tragedy.
After the failed attempt with Flotilla Mavi Marmara in May 2010, another attempt was done via land by joining Viva Palestina 5th (VP5) Global Land Convoy in September 2010. After a gruelling 40 days of travelling through England, France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Syria and Egypt, the convoy was successful in entering Gaza. This success has been the catalyst that paved the way for subsequent Aqsa Syarif’s missions.
Up until July 2014, Aqsa Syarif had successfully sent 20 missions to Gaza and refugee camps in Lebanon dubbed Aqsa2Gaza (A2G) Mission and Return2Aqsa (R2A) Mission respectively. These included 2 Audit Missions, 3 Ramadhan Missions and 4 Emergency Relief Missions. All these were to make sure that all donations from benefactors reached the deserving beneficiaries.
Unfortunately, since the military coup in Egypt (July 2013), Aqsa Syarif has not been able to send any mission to Gaza. Thankfully we have already established an office in Gaza to assist us with our projects.
