Sinn Féin MP Paul Maskey on presenting a cheque to Irish Medical Aid for Palestinians said it was important that aid continues to flow to the people of Gaza.
Accompanied by MLA Gerry Kelly and party councillors at Belfast City Hall, the West Belfast MP was presenting the cheque for £3,350 collected by Sinn Féin activists in Belfast over recent weeks.
Paul Maskey said:
“The people of Gaza are under severe pressure after the recent murderous onslaught they suffered.
“Irish Medical Aid for Palestinians do great work in helping the citizens of Gaza and the West Bank and any contribution will help in some small way.”
“It will take months if not longer for the people of Gaza to get their lives back to any resemblance of normality.
“The infrastructure and daily necessities are very scarce on the ground after the Israeli bombardment.
“Hopefully this small gesture from the people of Belfast will help in some way and I would encourage people to keep up their donations, whether that be financial or clothes etc, to the Palestinian people.”
