More than 100 Palestinians have died, a quarter of them children.

Wars and skirmishes do not occur in a vacuum; they are accumulated actions and reactions over years, if not decades. 

In 1948, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fled or were forced out of their homes in "Al Nakba," (The Catastrophe). Israel took military control of a land that was already a home, and the Palestinians who inhabited this land had no intent to leave. Without a peace agreement, the norm of fighting has followed for decades, and the Palestinian people attempt to live their lives and raise their families amidst unrest. This escalation is not a war; it is genocide.

People resort to violence when they lack peaceful, constructive means to express their grievance. Protesting against these aggressors is all Palestinians are able to do. Israeli military fight armed with grenades and no respect for humanitarian boundaries, murdering children and interrupting prayers, and violating International humanitarian law and ignoring core tenets of morality without consequence. Constant attempts to crush their spirits and destroy their homes, now amidst a global pandemic, leaves Palestinians without basic necessities and in critical danger.

Money donated goes toward the Gaza Emergency Fund, and will support those directly impacted by the conflict.

UNRWA is the only UN agency dedicated to supporting Palestine refugees, and that’s why we started this fundraising. Will you join us?

We are committed to matching donations up to $5,000 to support the Palestinian people, and will look to update our efforts beyond this.

Your donation will allow UNRWA to continue to provide lifesaving services to Palestine refugees. From emergency cash and food assistance to education and healthcare, UNRWA is transforming the lives of Palestine refugee children and their families every day.

With gratitude,

Justin and Nadia Karim

The IDF's attempts to crush the Palestinian spirit and destroy them in their homes, now amidst a global pandemic, leaves Palestinians without basic necessities and in critical danger. It must stop.

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.
