Do Unto Others focuses on the Middle East, (nonviolent) social movements, and how I make sense of my place in the world. I'm currently based in Cairo, Egypt doing peacebuilding and community development.

Is there a humanitarian crisis? You Do the Math!

61% of Gazans are food insecure, meaning that they absolutely rely on food aid for survival. 65% of those food insecure, are children, under the age of 18.

Anemia in babies (9-12 months) may be as high as 65.5%.

95% of Gaza's water supply fails the World Health Organization's water standards. This leaves many small children open to the threat of poisoning.

Yeah...go ahead, crunch the numbers.
