The Middle East Children's Aliance (MECA) is thrilled to announce the launch of our new online store, Shop Palestine!
As part of our work to aid Palestinian children and families, MECA buys and sells Palestinian crafts and goods to support the talented craftspeople in Palestine, help them generate income, and protect their way of life.
Several months ago, we wrote you when our shipment of Gaza crafts was held up by Israel, and the livelihoods of many Palestinian artisans were at stake. Since then, MECA Executive Director, Barbara Lubin, has traveled to Palestine twice, and carried these beautiful handmade items back with her.
Today, we continue our efforts to break Israel's illegal blockade of Gaza by making Palestinian products available for purchase online. All proceeds from the sale of these items will go to support the Palestinian craftspeople, as well as MECA programs.
Please enjoy our featured items including handwoven rugs, 100% pure olive oil soap, Middle Eastern books, and more! We also encourage you to continue checking our Shop Palestine page as we add more products including unique scarves, stunning Palestinian embroidery, and handmade jewelry.
And if you're local, we invite you to shop directly at our Berkeley office, where you can pick up a jar of honey, a bottle of olive oil, pottery, and much more. Happy Shopping!
