I am a British female volunteering for two and a half months in the West Bank with an organisation called IWPS (International Women’s Peace Service).

IWPS is the only all-women international peace team working in the Occupied West Bank and the only international peace team working in Salfit district, a rural area close to Nablus. Salfit district, as well as the nearby Nablus and Qalqilya districts, are affected by more than 20 illegal Israeli settler colonies, located in the Ariel settlement bloc. I will be living in Deir Istiya in the IWPS women’s house.

IWPS provides international accompaniment to Palestinian civilians, documenting and non-violently intervening in human right abuses and supporting acts of non-violent resistance to end the illegal Israeli occupation and building of the apartheid wall.

At the bottom right of I have added links for the IWPS Facebook page, Twitter account and website. Please follow!
