Hello and Welcome from Hope and Play
Goodwill Journey old
This page is for supporters of Wissam Al-Jayyoussi's Dubai to London bike ride for handicapped children in Gaza. Thank you for visiting our fundraising page.
This marathon motorbike trip from Dubai to London will take in 40,000 km across the Middle East and Europe, will touch base in 36 major capitals, and will last 59 days en route to the UK. The bike will be fueled with petrol, but the rider's fuel will be commitment to get things done for children with special needs in Gaza.
Our objective from this ride is to fund a school for handicapped children in Gaza. We want to give hope to the children with the most significant challenges.
Donating through this page is simple, quick and secure. It is the most efficient way to give – so every donation goes further. BMyCharity takes no commission on donations, Wissam's journey is self-financed, and Hope and Play's trustees pay the organisation's admin costs. So every penny / cent / dirham of your donation goes directly towards the projects we are funding.
Thank you for your support.
About Hope and Play (Goodwill Journey old)
Gaza suffered a devastating attack in 2008/2009 which left thousands of children orphaned, maimed, traumatised, disfigured and without a realistic education. The circumstances of Gaza's population, and especially its children, have been further exacerbated by the crippling blockade that the territory has been subjected to most recently since 2007. Our objective from this ride is to fund a school for handicapped children in Gaza. We want to give hope to the children with the most significant challenges. We will be seeking corporate sponsorship, but if experience is anything to go by, individual sponsors will also be key. Like all other Hope and Play events to date, you can be sure that your donations will go purely towards the projects that are being funded here. All travel costs are being covered outside of your sponsorship.

At Hope and Play, we believe that every child has the right to play, learn and grow in a safe, healthy and fun environment. We support children who are denied this, and whose lives as a consequence are harsh and unkind. We do this by supporting their education with textbooks, laptops, and other educational materials and resources, and by supporting their creative play by building playgrounds for them to have places to play safely. We help directly where there is an immediate humanitarian need. Through this, we aim to create opportunities for children and give them hope in a brighter future that they can have some control over. Our first areas of focus are schools and communities to in the occupied territories of Gaza and the West Bank, and communities in Bangladesh. Last year, we helped over 800 children in Gaza smile and laugh at a beach summer games event. Many of those children had not laughed or smiled in months. Others had never seen the sea despite living very close to it. All had just been subjected to horrific trauma in the attacks on Gaza earlier in the year. We have minimal admin overhead, as the organisation's activities are carried out on a voluntary basis by people who want to help. All admin costs are covered entirely by our founders. So you can be assured that every single penny of your donations will go to support this project. Please help support our projects by donating and sponsoring our campaigns.
