Introducing the founder of BHTG: Khalil Ibrahim Qeshta
Kites not Bomber Jets Fly Over Gaza
2017- the first week of July, thanks to donations received, we took 50 children to the seashore of Gaza for a day of fun in the sun. We provided Logo hats, t-shirts, breakfast, lunch and a day away from the stress and fear of daily life in occupied and besieged Gaza. A trip like this including transportation only cost $11 per child. Please donate to our children to make summer a little less painful, if only for a day... additional photos on the Photo Gallery tab.
Ramadan Mubarak in Gaza 2017
During the month of Ramadan, BHTG distributed food parcels to 350 families averaging 8 men women & children per family. We were also able to give out dried dates and bottled water to 2000 passers by.
None of this would be possible without the generous support of those who donated to our cause. We make it easy for you to help us help them. Please go to Paypal.me/bringinghopetogaza or click on the link provided further down the page. Every dollar makes a difference.
our Founder, attends University full time studying Pharmacy. After his studies and in his spare time, he visits the refugee camps and the orphanages to deliver much needed clothes, food, medicine and smiles... thereby Bringing Hope to Gaza.
We brought snacks, toys and joy to 100 children who attend Kindergarten in Gaza. Khalil knows and loves children so much and just how to brighten their day. Thanks to your generosity we were able to give them a day of nothing but fun and games. We love these children, they are happy with the simplest things...
Your Donations Have a Double Impact on Lives in Gaza!!!
100% of your donations go directly to aid refugees and children in Gaza. Not only do your donations, provide food, clothing, medicine etc. to those in need, but since we make all our purchases in Gaza, you also put food on the tables of local farmers and the families of small business owners in Gaza who struggle to make ends meet. So you see,your donations have a double impact on lives in Gaza.
One Donation:Twice the Impact
His family is in a desperate situation and needs $100/monthly to provide for Omar and themselves. this is an IMMEDIATE need. we are looking into the cost of a prosthetic arm which we hope to provide the funds for in the near future.
Thanks to the generosity of donors who gave money in support of Omar , Khalil visited him today to bring much needed school supplies. A school pack with wheels was the solution since Omar's shoulders won't support a regular backpack.
Khalil will visit the family 2 times per month to assess and deliver their needs. (food, clothing, medicine, supplies, etc)
Food for 50 More Families
Even though he was sick, Khalil, found the strength to deliver food to 50 families in the camps today. to him, the needs of others come first. his devotion to the people of Gaza is humbling. thank you donors for making the purchase of nutritious food possible. and thank you Khalil, for all that you selflessly do for Gaza.
Hunger is an ongoing problem in besieged Gaza. With over 880,000 Palestinians depending on aid, it is difficult to ease all the suffering, but because of you, we are able to feed 50 more families with nutritious food: beans, rice, flour for bread, tea, sugar, canned foods and of course, a little sweet treat for the children. The blockade imposed in 2007 makes it more than difficult for large scale aid to enter Gaza. it is up to grass roots organizations such as ours to make up the difference.
Coats for Kids!!!
Thank you donors!!!
Because of your generosity, we were able to purchase 50 warm and waterproof jackets for the children living in the camps of Gaza. The sad part being, they must also wear them inside since there is limited wood for fires and electricity comes for only 3 - 4 hours a day and sometimes no electricity at all for days at a time.
Hoodies, hoodies and more hoodies!!!
Bringing smiles and Hope to these beautiful children at the orphanages brings us as much joy as it brings them. These little angels are sporting the "hoodies" we were able to purchase with your donations...
Blankets for Babies
Most people have an idea that
it doesn't get cold in Gaza... but it does, wet and cold. With your donations Khalil was able to buy enough blankets
to keep 150 children warm at
night. Here he is with his "notebook of needs" delivering blankets to
one of the many refugee camps in Gaza.
distributing 200 pairs of much needed winter gloves to children at one of only five orphanages in Gaza. With over 15,000 children orphaned since 2008, we can barely scratch the surface. Some of the 15,000+ are fortunate enough to live with extended families and caring neighbors, yet the majority depend on the kindness of those who wish to make their lives better. Those like you.
a juice box...
that's all it took to bring these smiles.
not an iPhone, not an Xbox, not a remote control "anything"...
just a juice box.
they are so grateful for the smallest kindness shown them.
we love these children so much...
Thank you donors!!!... you provided the funds for us to purchase 70 pairs of shoes, 70 pairs of socks and 70 little bags of chocolates... a rare treat for these sweet little children.
Khalil is so thoughtful, he bought velcro tabbed shoes so the little ones wouldn't have to struggle with laces.
Winters are more than difficult in Gaza
Lack of proper food, heat, shelter and electricity make for a life threatening situation, especially for the children.
On Jan 7, thanks to donors, we were able to purchase
50 Parcels of fresh fruit and vegetables to distribute in the refugee camps of Gaza. Each parcel contained enough nutritious food to feed an entire family for 2 weeks.

We are a "grass roots" organization, founded by Khalil Ibrahim Qeshta and Heidi Schwab, with one goal: to bring Hope and ease the suffering of orphans, children and refugees in besieged Gaza.
Besieged Gaza is "home" to nearly 2,000,000 Palestinians living within 365 sq. km, 47% of which are refugees having been forced from their lands and homes. Consequently the unemployment rate among adults is also 47%. Palestinians in Gaza have been under severe restrictions of "movement" since 1990 and under a full blockade since 2007 which allows very little aid to reach the people who need it most. At last count there are 15,223 orphans in Gaza due to the last 3 wars waged against a defenseless civilian population. It is our mission to help these children and families in need. We can't do this without the support of caring individuals like you.
Every single dollar donated goes to those who need it most, the orphans and families with children living as refugees in their own country.
We can't help everyone but we can help SOMEONE.
Khalil Ibrahim - Founder
