Please join Friends of Sabeel - Colorado on September 9, 2018 for a special talk given by Mohammed Eid, a 28-year-old Palestine refugee, who grew up in Rafah camp in the Gaza Strip, where UNRWA provides services.
Mohammed is currently a Rotary Fellow pursuing a master's degree in Global Studies and International Development through a joint program at the University of North Carolina and Duke University.
During this talk, Mohammed will share his story of what life is like living and growing up in Gaza and the role the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) played in his life.
This event is free and open to the public.
Mohammed is from Gaza Strip, Palestine, one of the worst conflict zones in the world, yet also a very beautiful and lovely place. After studying applied linguistics at the University of Southampton in England, Mohammed began working for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency in 2011, as a youth education specialist. He has worked on many programs and initiatives related to education development and youth empowerment.
During the conflict of 2012, Mohammed worked in the centers that hosted and provided aid to refugees. In the following four years, his country was subject to two fierce wars, in which there were unprecedented levels of crisis and a rapid deterioration of the humanitarian situation. He hopes he can contribute to ending the violence and reaching a lasting solution that will save thousands of lives.
