In the spirit of Ramadan, UNRWA USA invites you to attend an experiential and interactive charitable Iftar for Gaza. The dinner will feature authentic Middle Eastern cuisine, hosted at Casa La Femme in Manhattan's West Village. This event will evoke a day in the life of a Palestine refugee in Gaza, and this Iftar for Gaza will contribute to UNRWA food assistance for Palestine refugees living in the blockaded Gaza Strip.

Nearly one million of the 1.3 million Palestine refugees in the Gaza Strip rely on UNRWA food assistance to meet their basic needs, as they await a just solution. Following the US decision in January 2018 to cut funding to UNRWA by $300 million, food may run out this Ramadan.

When determining the amount of your donation, please consider that $150 can provide food assistance to a Palestine refugee family in Gaza for the entire summer.

Donations made through UNRWA USA are tax-deductible and are zakat eligible as certified by the National Zakat Foundation.
