Emergency Aid for Children Fleeing Syria
 
The Middle East Children's Alliance (MECA) will provide emergency aid for thousands of children and women fleeing the terrible violence in Syria. Dozens of children arrive each day to already overcrowded and impoverished Palestinian Refugee Camps or informal encampments in Lebanon. Most arrive with no belongings. Some are accompanied by their mothers or elderly relatives; others arrive alone or with other children. They need everything from soap to blankets to medicine. project reportread updates from the field
Maia Project: Clean Water for Children in Gaza
 
The student parliament at a middle school in Gaza voted for the one thing they wanted most for their school: They chose clean water. The water in Gaza is polluted with sea water and chemicals. Poor families are faced with the "choice" of purchasing commercial water or risking the health and well being of their children. This project started in response to the children's request. We build and maintain water purification units in schools and kindergartens throughout Gaza. project reportread updates from the field
University Scholarships for Students in Palestine
 
Palestinian students face many obstacles in obtaining a university degree. They cross checkpoints en route to lectures, study at home by candle light, and work side jobs to pay their tuition. Our scholarship pays for students' tuition at local universities thereby enabling talented and ambitious high school graduates to obtain degrees and the skills to make important contributions to their communities and their country. project reportread updates from the field
