My name is Najah and I am a refugee, born and raised in a refugee camp in Rafah in the Gaza Strip. I have been providing services to empower women in Rafah, Gaza for over 19 years as the Executive Director of the Women Programs Center-Rafah. Right now, a million people are taking refuge here, in southern Gaza and bombing is underway. Healthy, protein-based meals for displaced families make all the difference. A single meal feeds a family of 6. Please, help my team feed 400 families/day.
Since 1925 the Spafford Children's Center (SCC) in East Jerusalem has served the Palestinian population. Currently, SCC provides treatment for trauma reactions in children who have experienced violence in their communities as well as family stress.

The SCC also provides speech and occupational therapy, plus art, dance, music, and recreational programs.
Families in Gaza need your help. Innocent people are caught in the middle of massive bombing in retaliation for a deadly attack against Israel's cities. So far 123,000 Palestinians have taken refuge in UN schools. Massive bombing by the Israeli Army is destroying neighborhoods, mosques, even crowded markets. Soon there will be no food. Rebuilding Alliance and our Palestinian Non-Gov Org partners asks your help right now to buy food & hygiene supplies locally for families who are in extreme need.
The Corona pandemic has damaged the world food supply, lowering food exports and dramatically impacting the world economy. One important way for unemployed Palestinian families to get by is to garden or raise chickens, goats, sheep, cows, or rabbits.

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.

We build and maintain water purification units in schools and kindergartens throughout Gaza.

Discriminatory policies in housing and education, police brutality, and eviction orders, make it nearly impossible for young Palestinians in Jaffa to build a future in their city, and resist the removal of their community. The mainstream story often told of Jaffa enables these trends of forced removal to continue. We seek to train Jaffa's young people, and those seeking to stand in solidarity with them, to lead alternative tours of the city and speak up.
Only about 25% of Gazans have access to water in their homes for up to 7 hours a day, 65% get it for 7 hours every two days, and 10% every three days.

This project will provide and maintain a purification and desalination unit that is independent of municipal water and electricity and will target schools with a minimum of 2500 students.
