Students for the African Refugees
למקרה שלא שמעתם, אם כמוני אינכם מבזבזים זמן על המכתבים הנבובים-בדרך-כלל של אגודת הסטודנטים (או אם אינכם סטודנטים...), מארגנים באוניברסיטת תל-אביב סיוע לפליטים האפריקאיים. במיוחד נדרשים מזרנים ונעליים, אבל דרושים גם אנשים שמוכנים לעזור לפליטים בהתארגנות בסיסית במגורים (יש תקציב למגורים, ודרושה בעיקר עזרה של תקשורת בסיסית עם הפליטים ותיווך בינם לבין סביבתם, התמודדות עם טפסים, וכו').

עוד נחוצים: מקררים, מגבות, בגדים, חומרי ניקוי ותכשירי רחצה, מזון עמיד (שימורים וכו'), וכתבי-עת או חומר קריאה קל באנגלית, צרפתית, וערבית.

גם מתנדבים להוראה בסיסית של עברית ו/או אנגלית יתקבלו בברכה. מדובר ביסודות, רק מספיק כדי להסתדר קצת ברחוב, לעשות קניות בסיסיות, להתמצא בעיר, באוטובוסים, וכו'.

פרטים אצל אור פיאלקוב, בטלפון 052-8498241.

בנוסף, ברח' לבנדה 56 תל אביב יש איזה מרכז סיוע לפליטים, ואפשר לדבר שם עם גברת בשם אליס, שמדברת רק אנגלית, בטלפון 054-6388633 לגבי הגעה ופריקת ציוד שם.

the irony of political hypocracy.

i doubt anyone in the world will remember how Israel helps the African's of Darfur as they flee the ethnic cleansning done by arab muslims from central sudan and sent by khartoom.

who will forget?
the chinese who are not trying to stop sudan though they hold most clout over them as sudan's biggest oil buyers.
the europeans might say a nice word here or there but we know them and their hypocracy (not to mention the fact that i think that some european nations are NOT taking in darfur refugees)
the UN... lets not even talk about the useless UN.

and then one day we will an hear arab or iranian tyrant accusing israel of ethnic cleansning (when its far from it), we will hear europeans saying that they might have a point (because the europeans want cheap oil and european politicians will do what it takes to win muslim votes in their own countries) and the UN will issue yet another resolution (yay!) - to hell with them all.

Excuse me, but "Israel" does not help the Africans; in fact, it (i.e. the State) tries damn hard to dump them back where they came from, or at the very least make them Somebody Else's Problem (like Egypt's, a state that would undoubtedly immediately dump them right back in Sudan).

Some Israeli people help them. There's a huge difference, and Israel may not take credit for that. If Israel were helping them, students and other people wouldn't have had to.

I do agree the UN is useless.

I don't know if they are being smuggled but they are crossing the border illegally and then are being held by the army for months before either deportation back, or being dumped in the streets and being tossed around by the municipal authorities. saying that israel is helping them if preposterous
