KinderUSA is honored and humbled to report that Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai donated $25,000 to support the children we serve in Palestine. Our ongoing efforts in the East Jerusalem, West Bank, and Gaza speak to the need and the horrors Palestinian children face daily from the occupation and human rights abuses.
In Gaza, we are currently distributing fresh food and store vouchers to impoverished families in the northern area. Our team is assessing whether KinderUSA’s rehabilitation project in 60 schools providing water tanks for clean drinking water suffered damage.
Malala’s contribution is joining our efforts to reverse the nightmare of occupation and war, bringing peace, hope, and security for all children.
“I pray for a lasting peace in the region and call on leaders to protect every child’s fundamental rights,” Malala Yousafzai.
“Thank you, Malala, for your tireless and fearless commitment to the innocent children of Palestine and to the children across the globe. It is a privilege to stand alongside such a courageous woman,” Dr. Laila Al-Marayati, Chairperson KinderUSA.
