Hatem Hamdouna, a 15-year old Palestinian refugee who has lived through three armed conflicts at the age of four, eight and ten, once said at the United Nations: "UNRWA education is like oxygen, it keeps us alive."

When you live under occupation and blockade, in displacement and in war-torn areas, all aspects of your childhood are impacted. Schools become more than schools. They become a place of safety and of learning; a place where a child can grow and dream; a place where a child can explore.
A place where a child can breathe. 


UNRWA operates 711 elementary and preparatory schools in its five fields of operation, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, West Bank and the Gaza Strip, providing free basic education for some 526,000 Palestine refugee children.


As viewed in the picture, the smiles appearing on the childrens faces are a direct result of the breather provided by education in such turbulent times. That's why I have started this fundraising campaign to help UNRWA – the only UN agency dedicated to supporting Palestine refugees.

Absolutely any type of contribution, whether its financial or simply a share amongst friends, can make today the day you provide a student some oxygen. 


With gratitude,
Saja Kilani

Established by the UN General Assembly in 1949, our mission is to assist Palestine refugees in achieving their full potential until a just and lasting solution to the refugee crisis is found. The Agency provides services to Palestine refugees in Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, and the West Bank (including East Jerusalem).

 

Over the past seven decades, Palestine refugees have experienced extremes in violence, suffering and injustice. As a result, they are confronted with daunting human development and protection challenges, which stand to arrest their significant potential. Humanitarian conditions across much of the UNRWA areas of operation are grave, exacerbated by protracted conflict and the lack of political progress. Read more about our mission and achievments.
