We have focused crucial aid efforts on Palestine, both in the West Bank and Gaza, since our very beginning in 2001. Regarding growing food insecurity, our annual Seasonal Islamic Giving Program helps UNRWA reach its goal of providing 924,310 Palestine refugees with emergency food assistance.
Your generous aid has newly brought greenhouse farming to Gaza. We supply the greenhouses, equipment, training, and expert guidance for growing and marketing. The produce sustains these families nutritionally and provides them income from its surplus sales.
Regarding growing food insecurity, our Seasonal Islamic Giving Program provides thousands of Palestinians food during Ramadan. This is followed by our annual Udhiyah (Qurbani) sacrifice, where we distribute fresh, Islamically slaughtered, hand-delivered meat on Eid al-Adha.
We have worked with UNRWA USA since the massive 2014 bombardment to repair and rebuild damaged and destroyed housing, making them safe for their displaced refugee families to return to them. Palestine’s people, particularly its children, suffer the highest rates of mental health disorders in the entire Middle East. We provide professional training for teachers, counselors, staff, and principals to detect signs of mental health strain. Our crucial Orphan Sponsorship Program includes total sponsorship of the children, including food, clothing, and all educational and health needs.
