â€œAstoundingly, Cycling4Gaza, a tiny non profit NGO, founded in 2009 after the Cast Lead massacre, has already raised well over $1million for health care and education projects in the besieged Gaza Strip. A staggering sum from an organization initiated by 4 young friends hanging posters on London streets to recruit fellow cyclists for their first trek from London to Paris.â€
"There's never been a time in the groups short history where their efforts are as crucial as they are today. "
"Representing Gaza on the trip will be cyclist Ahmed Abu Nammous,16, from Jabaila Refugee Camp in Gaza. Shot by an Israeli sniper, Nammous lost his leg above the knee and was treated by PCRF in Ohio last year. Flown to US by PCRF, he was and fitted with a prosthetic leg. Alaraj mentioned she's "thrilled" Nammous is able to join the US cycle. Apparently it was touch and go whether he'd be able to get out of the Strip."
