Gaza convoy has arrived

by Michael Keizer on March 10, 2009

A short update on my previous posting: the Viva Gaza convoy apparently arrived yesterday (or today, depending in which time zone you are) in Gaza — which makes it the first succesful privately organised aid convoy of this size.

Although… my friend and fellow humanitarian Paras Valeh points out that, back in 1995, a privately organised aid convoy negotiated its way from London to Bosnia. Apparently the convoy was organised by UCL Medical School students. I have tried to find some further information on this convoy, but so far without luck. Anybody who would be able to shed some light?

I am continously scouting for aidworkers blogs and aid related blogs. Have been for two years.

How the heck could I have missed yours?

Sure glad I did!

PS: I manage the aidblogs list… can I add yours?
(pse email me directly)

Well… errmmm… because I only started less than a month ago? Yes, newbie territory here, so I would be more than happy to receive any suggestions for improvement (especially after reading your yes, I am a nerd posting — for the moment I will be leaving Pipes c.a. well enough alone).

I will send you an email message re AWN.
