Support This Week in Palestine
Dr Bernard Sabella, executive director of the Department of Service to Palestinian Refugees has written encouraging financial support or subscriptions to This Week in Palestine.
“One interesting fact about TWiP is the contributions of experts to different aspects of Palestinian culture and life in an easy to read style. At a time of challenge to cultural identities, particularly with the onslaught of Online Identities, subscribing to TWiP would be a way to support the cultural heritage of Palestine and its people,” he says.
