First Euro-palestinean voluntary camp in Ein alhilwee camp.
In Europe there are many friends of the Palestinian people who believe in their cause, its right to live with dignity, express their solidarity with its struggle to achieve the rights of fair.
Those friends, launched several initiatives, to support Palestinian people, some of them from human perspective, some other from political, ideological point of view, Especially with The huge governmental support from Europe to Israel in all levels .
Such policy encourages the aggressive policy of Israel. In fact some of Palestinians, the big majority of them believe that this support helped Israel to be existed, logically, such assistance from Europe, covered the massacres and caused the historical Palestinian suffering, by another words, without the European coverage, suffering would not be existed .this led to the conclusion that There is a moral and legal responsibility of Europe in its formal frame, since Europe was a patronage of Israel creation the mean cause of the Palestinian suffering.
This didn’t finish yet, the Palestinian people still feel of the imbalance of the European dealing, between Palestinians and Israeli, Palestinians are interested in forming a friendship circle, friends that understand the above mentioned conclusion, moreover, believe of the importance of European role, the public opinion is very important, we believe that by the help of our friends we can make sense in spite of the superiority of media and propaganda against Palestinians. so that they encourage all friendly initiatives, this can accumulated to be as a moral balance.
In 2007 a European delegation visited Lebanon, and held meetings with Nashet team in order to reach common understanding about the forthcoming voluntary work, how to improve the norms of solidarity, how to enhance the European awareness’s in the Palestinian cause specifically?
Two Ideas were discussed, the project from view of Nashet , the other from Sumod (the name of European frame). Nashet suggested to create a communication centre, that can be available for youth , Sumod view is to have a hard voluntary work, the common point of both sides is rehabilitate a building that can be used as a center for youth.
Voluntarily camp was supposed to be started in 2008, but the possibilities hadn’t been available yet, this imposed that the camp to be delayed to 2009.
