A new month and a new story of positivity from the world around us with the #WATWB. Join us every month for spreading some joy cheer and happiness. #InDarknessBeLight
The young engineer with a plan to rebuild Gaza is Majid Mashharawi. Even though wars in the past 10 years have decimated Gaza, a young girl is rebuilding it with the materials found right there in the city.
Mashharawi hopes Green Cake will help Gaza residents towards self-sufficiency by freeing them from the need to import building materials from outside. Getting hold of construction materials in Gaza is expensive and time-consuming – if possible at all.
Green Cake looks like ordinary concrete but is more environmentally friendly as it re-uses coal ash. It is called ‘cake’ because it is much lighter than concrete, and the blocks are 25 percent cheaper than concrete equivalents.
Once again, here are the guidelines for #WATWB:
1. Keep your post to Below 500 words, as much as possible.
2. Link to a human news story on your blog, one that shows love, humanity, and brotherhood. Paste in an excerpt and tell us why it touched you. The Link is important, because it actually makes us look through news to find the positive ones to post.
3. No story is too big or small, as long as it Goes Beyond religion and politics, into the core of humanity.
4. Place the WE ARE THE WORLD badge or banner on your Post and your Sidebar. Some of you have already done so, this is just a gentle reminder for the others.
