To our supporters, We are living through the most difficult and amazing time. You have demonstrated incredible support for artisans and farmers in Palestine and for the work our staff and partners are doing. We cannot thank you enough. As you can see shoppalestine.org has very little inventory right now. Both the shop online and our annual bazaar were successful beyond our wildest dreams! In the meantime, we have contacted all of our producers who are able to continue working. Orders are already on the way to us. We will do our best to update inventory as quickly as possible. On the way to us are more ceramics, glass, soap, keffiyehs, books, jewelry, Dead Sea products… and more. We are sorry but it is just not possible for us to individually notify you when items come in. We are truly beyond capacity right now. Please keep checking our website for items. We are shipping out orders to you as fast as we are able. But there have been and will continue to be delays. Know we are doing our best. Thank you so much for your support and solidarity! MECA Staff

Atfaluna Crafts is an income generation project of the Atfaluna Society for Deaf Children,the only institution in Gaza that is devoted to education and services for people with hearing disabilities.
Atfaluna Crafts was born out of the need for vocational training for hearing-impaired adults. Today, the project encompasses a number of workshops, including wood carpentry, ceramics, embroidery and sewing, painting, and weaving. In addition to the 51 Crafts employees, the project provides income for 250 women who work from home to produce the exquisite embroidery. The impressive quality and stunning design of their crafts are a testament to Atfaluna's vision and dedication, which have succeeded in bringing out the talents and creativity of people who have long been stigmatized and neglected.
