NYC -- we're coming back to Brooklyn for a fourth year! Move for mental health with UNRWA USA at the #Gaza5K on Saturday, March 24!
In light of the US Administration's decision to cut funding to UNRWA by 83%, this is a tangible and meaningful way to show your solidarity with Palestine refugees and UNRWA's critical work!
Sign up at gaza5k.org/nyc and start fundraising to make access to mental health care a reality for all Palestine refugee children in the Gaza Strip!
Join your host committee, Salah Zalatimo, Nas Jab, Osman Hussein, Raihan Faroqui, Dania Hasan, Ratiba Dolah, and Manal Jamal and move for mental health!
We're fundraising to employ 25 UNRWA CMHP* 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.
- Fundraise $50 and get an official NYC Gaza 5K t-shirt
- Fundraise $500 for a beautiful, classic keffiyeh from the Hirbawi Textile Factory, the last remaining keffiyeh factory in Palestine. They come complete with a “made in Palestine” tag!
- Fundraise $1,000 for your very own piece of Palestine! We'll plant an olive tree in your honor in a refugee camp or near an UNRWA facility in the West Bank.
*CMHP is UNRWA's Community Mental Health Programme.
