PLEASE note:

As soon as you arrive in Egypt we suggest that you get an Egyptian number and buy only a
Vodafone it's the best network working at Rafah gate.

Bring a sleeping bag and a tent too if possible.

Bring a spray or something to protect you from mosquitoes, they are not dangerous but there's a lot of mosquitoes there.

Bring wet wipes to use when there isn't enough water.

LADIES: PLEASE dress appropriately you will be camping on the street! i.e not shorts or sleeveless clothes,

Last but by all means least KEFIAH IB MOUSA HAMED , travelled back to Mansoura, an Egyptian city last night where they were staying to take her for Kidney dialysis. Kefaya, 57 good educated and nominated as a parliament member, she lost her husband during the Intifada and her house in the last war. She has been in Egypt for treatment since May 16, and todate has spent around 60.000 Eg. pounds. Doctors said that she needs a Pancreas transplant as well because she's diabetes and that can be done in France. Her son's kidney's tissues did not match so they'll try her daughter who is in Gaza now.
The good news is that our friend Jane from France who was with us at the sit-in but returned to France yesterday, says she will try to help and get her to France.
The police at Rafah gate threatened the lady's family as they do with everybody and told them better not deal with us, but they refused that.

Remember  British Citizens Jenny Linnell and Natalie Abou Chakra  continue to be refused exit at the Egyptian Border with Gaza to  return via Egypt to the UK, we again ask you to  write to the US/ UK/ Egypt Embassy Consulate to ask for a better way of allowing people passage, especially when sick or injured.
