Event Description 

What: The struggle for clean water in Palestine. There is a growing water crisis in Palestine that affects agriculture, industry, and the health of virtually every adult and child. In the Gaza Strip, poor sanitation and over-extraction have polluted the limited water supply. In September 2009, the Middle East Children's Alliance (MECA) launched the Maia Project (Arabic for "water") to provide Palestinian children with clean, safe drinking water.

Who: Ziad Abbas, Associate Director of Middle East Children's Alliance and a Palestinian refugee from the West Bank, is coming to share the story of the Palestinian children and their need for clean water. Following his presentation there will be a response by Palestinian poets.

When: Thursday, April 29, 2010, at 7 p.m.
