Join Sylvie to make a difference - Donate to the UNRWA today to give the gift of education 


A few have asked me what I wanted for my 50th birthday  ...I’m lucky and blessed to be in good health, have wonderful & caring family and friends around me ... that’s all I need to be happy 😊.


But at the same time, I am touched and saddened by the latest events in a long standing situation in Palestine affecting so many families and especially children once again… and even impacting some close friends of mine directly/indirectly over their lifetime.   I would like to show my support and help… even if it’s a drop in an ocean of need… 


So instead of a birthday gift... Will you help me to raise some funds to make a contribution to the UNRWA to support their great work in the region?  The UNRWA is the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East.


These funds would go to support the UNRWA on the ground in rebuilding schools and in delivering education through their UN supported schools and programs.  UNRWA operates 711 elementary and preparatory schools in its five fields of operation, including eight secondary schools in Lebanon, providing free basic education for some 526,000 Palestine refugee children.    You can find out more about their action on


Donate now, and today change a student's life.   Any amount will help!…. I will aim to match the overall donations received as my own contribution.    (And of course please feel free to forward this donation link to others around you who might be interested in make a donation and showing their support too. Thank you so much ! )


THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH to help me to make a simple and tangible gesture of solidarity  😊.

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.
