Together we can make a difference in the life of a child.
KinderUSA works with a broad range of partners implementing programs that target the most vulnerable children in Gaza, focusing on health and nutrition, education, development, and relief. The Gaza strip is around 40km in length and 10km in width or just over 140 square miles. This once bustling coastal area of land is home to approximately 2 million Palestinians, of which more than half under the age of 18 and the second highest worldwide population of children between the ages 0-14.
Home to more than 2.4 million people, over 47% of whom are children, living in 2124 square miles. Palestinians living in the West Bank are subject to restricted freedom of movement including a limited access from the WALL, checkpoints, roadblocks, permits, closure of areas, which limit the flow of people, goods, and services throughout. The continued expansion of settlements restrict farmers from their lands and natural resources.

Close to 500,000 Palestinian refugees reside in Lebanon; more than half are scattered across 12 camps where they live in abject. The recent influx of 1 million Syrian refugees has made Lebanon host to the world’s highest number of refugees per captia.
In southern Lebanon near the town of Saida, Ein el-Hilweh is the largest of all 12 camps in both size and population with an estimated 80,000 inhabitants. To the north of Tripoli, the Nahr el-Bared camp was once considered the most prosperous and functional refugee camp in all of Lebanon with an estimated 30,000 inhabitants until recent fighting and ultimate destruction of the camp.

Many children around the world suffer when tragedy strikes resulting in the need for immediate assistance. Prompted by our donors, KinderUSA funds vetted relief agencies and local organizations that respond quickly and effectively to these emergencies, supporting the programs that have the greatest impact.
KinderUSA works with children in various desperate situations that face the Syrian people who have escaped war in their country. Many have fled to Lebanon, Turkey, Greece and other parts of Europe. Our work has taken us to each of these places with food distribution in Greece, clothing in Turkey, and education in Lebanon working with various partners in the region.
KinderUSA has partnered with various organizations responding to earthquakes, floods, and violence directed at internally displaced people, delivering food, providing education, psychosocial support, educational tools, and building playgrounds.
Over 5000 people in Africa, including a high number of internally displaced children, have benefitted from the construction of four invaluable wells supplying clean, safe drinking water. Clean drinking water in many areas are either non-existent or extremely difficult to collect. The construction of the wells has meant that the onerous task of water collection, which often falls to women and children, has been considerably lightened and the safer water has cut the risk of life-threatening water borne diseases.
