Zaid’s Story

In Palestine, KinderUSA’s primary mission is to provide an environment of safety and the nurturing of good health in children living under such brutal conditions. Providing all children the chance to live with dignity, good health, education, and shelter should be the mission of all.
Subjected to one of the longest blockades in human history, since 2007, whose public health system has been destroyed repeatedly, and where the risk of disease is widespread, less than 4% of fresh water is drinkable, children in Gaza suffer every kind of human rights violation. Survival is a challenge that no child should have to struggle with in our time.

Working in partnership with the Future Development Commission, KinderUSA has been providing freshly prepared meals to children in 13 kindergartens serving 800 children. Eleven women working in a cooperative are paid to prepare the meals which include meat and cheese filled pies, vegetable, and juice. Many of these children attend school having only tea and dry bread in the morning to carry them through the day.
One of the beneficiaries, Zaid, was identified by his teachers shy and withdrawn, and would not interact with classmates nor would he participate in activities. Now, eating lunch together with his peers, Zaid has blossomed like many of his classmates.  Zaid’s mother and the teachers all thank you, our donors, for providing meals to these marginalized children giving them the sustenance they need and deserve to grow and thrive.
