Trade-not-Aid June 2011 June 29, 2011

Our Mission

Samouni InterTrade Palestine is a social enterprise international trade mission.

We endeavour to catalyze the end of Gaza’s charitable dependency status through import and export trade.  We do not seek simply to alleviate the suffering of the people in Gaza. Our ultimate objective is to eliminate preventable, blockade-derived suffering.

We recognise the loss of dignity that is inherent in compelling a people to live on aid.

We are focused on the root of the problem and thus we are committed to replacing aid with trade.

Our motives are humanitarian, our objective is to transport people and cargo through Rafah Crossing without obstruction, continuously, as required for viable trade.

In the long-term, our goal is for Gaza to be rebuilt, its infrastructure functioning to capacity, for an egalitarian economy to develop and a transformation from despair to prosperity to take place.
