Gaza’s largest and most beloved book shop and library was destroyed by air strikes on Tuesday. The two-story Samir Mansour book store was built 21 years ago and served as a community centre and book shop for the local Gaza community and Palestinian school children. Tens of thousands of books were destroyed. All of the heart, creativity and talent poured into this magical place is gone.

As a result of the complete siege on Gaza Strip, construction supplies are in extreme short supply and heavily inflated.

Please donate generously and help Palestinians get books back.

All funds will be given directly to Samir Mansour to rent new space and rebuild a new library and book shop.

This fundraiser is managed by human rights lawyers Mahvish Rukhsana and Clive Stafford Smith.
