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.

Registration:
Sign up at gaza5k.org and start fundraising to make access to mental health care a reality for all Palestine refugee children in the Gaza Strip!

Fundraising prizes:
- Fundraise $50 and get one official Gaza 5K t-shirt (each individual must fundraise a minimum of $50 beyond the cost of registration to receive their 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.
