THANK YOU for turning this campaign into a phenomenal milestone for Gazas geeks! This is how we feel today thanks to you!
(We took this picture on Gazas famous beach :))
Thanks to your generosity, Gazas tech community can now receive 3 important investments:

The campaign also led to 3-year commitments from two partners. With those included, we raised a grand total of $417,497!
