Gaza’s Ark is rebuilding a large fishing boat in Gaza and converting it into a cargo vessel using existing resources. A crew of internationals and Palestinians will sail it out of Gaza, the only Mediterranean port closed to shipping, carrying Palestinian products to fulfill trade deals with international buyers, to challenge the illegal and inhuman Israeli blockade.
Gaza’s Ark relies fully on donations from individuals and NGOs from all over the world. We do not accept any funds from governments. We believe that people like you can make a difference. Our joint effort can make that happen. You can be part of it in a very concrete way.
Building a boat is very complex and has many different components. We will start with purchasing a fishing boat in Gaza that will then be refurbished for sailing on the high seas. Our Palestinian partners in Gaza have helped us to locate a boat and we are very close to purchasing and insuring one.
We are ready to make a down payment on the boat and start rebuilding it right away, as we raise the rest of the money to pay it in full.
We need your help now in the purchase of the boat.
We would like to offer you the opportunity to own symbolic shares in Gaza’s Ark. Each symbolic share has a unit value of $50 (Canadian).
You can buy as many units of Gaza’s Ark shares as you would like (in multiples of $50) and we will apply your contribution directly towards the purchase of the boat.
This offer is valid until we can cover the full cost of the purchase and refurbishing of the boat.
