It was with deep sadness that we
received the news of Marina Rossanda’s death yesterday. We would like to offer our sincerest condolences
to her family, and to all of our dear friends at Gazzella.
Marina was a figure of great
respect at PMRS, with whom she worked tirelessly to give hope to children
injured as a result of the conflict, and to bring the humanitarian and health
situation in Palestine to the world’s
Marina has left behind her the
legacy of an admirable woman committed to justice, liberty and peace. It is from people like her that we draw the strength
and motivation to continue struggling for an end to this debilitating
occupation towards freedom, dignity, and justice.
In her, we have lost a dear friend
who will be forever remembered by the staff of PMRS, and by the many
Palestinians whose hearts she touched.
With our deepest sympathies
