Can you imagine what it would be like to live in the Gaza Strip? Mohammed Eid, a 29 year old Palestine refugee, will share his story of growing up in Gaza under Israeli occupation on Sunday, January 6, during Westminster Presbyterian Church’s education hour. Schools are safe havens for young people during conflicts, and Mohammed will talk about the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestine Refugees and how it provides education, food assistance, health, and job programs for over one million people struggling to survive.
A graduate of UNRWA schools and a former UNRWA employee, Mohammed is now a Rotary Peace Fellow pursuing a master's degree in Global Studies and International Development through a joint program at the UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University in North Carolina.
Mohammed will be joined by UNRWA USA's Program Manager, Lori Mosher, who will be available to discuss ways Americans can support UNRWA's work.
