100% of funds going straight to Gaza! Share your Ramadan across borders

Posted by uscsjp on June 10, 2016

100% of donations to UNRWA’s Ramadan campaign will go directly to Gaza.

Where others have failed, UNRWA invests in creating countless opportunities for Palestine refugees, empowering them with the skills they need to persevere. And with your help, we can do even more.

Ramadan is a time to give thanks for what we have, contemplate how to better ourselves, and help those who are less fortunate. Whether you observe or not, your tax-deductible gift of $120 will provide a family in Gaza with enough flour, sugar, olive oil, meat, lentils, chickpeas, and other essential food items to get them through the month.

The sooner you give, the sooner we can act. Donate and help bring joy to their table this month.

There is also a conversation happening on Twitter and Instagram:  #ramadanacrossborders

You don’t have to celebrate Ramadan to participate in this conversation. Holidays, family, and separation are universal themes. Many of us have family and loved ones across borders, whether those are state lines or international.

So join the #ramadanacrossborders exchange: 

  1. Share your stories of what it’s like to celebrate holidays (Ramadan is just one example) with loved ones who aren’t in the same geographical place. Can you imagine Christmas without family ten years in a row?
  2. If you are Muslim, share what Ramadan looks like for you. We’re talkingsuhoor and iftar photos, gatherings with families and friends, or even community events.

Palestine refugees in Gaza and elsewhere in the world will do the same, creating an exchange across borders. We can’t wait to see what you have to say.
