HOUSTON GAZA 5K + DABKE PARTY/MOVING FOR MENTAL HEALTH
In light of the UNRWA funding crisis and the deteriorating humanitarian conditions, we’re fundraising to provide emergency assistance, including employing 25 UNRWA counselors — refugees themselves — to provide psychosocial support to Palestine refugee children and families in the Gaza Strip who suffer from trauma due to repeated Israeli military assaults and the continued blockade.
