Dear Ramallah Club, 

Those who have survived Israel’s latest assault have seen endless death, destruction, and displacement. These children will likely bear physical and psychological scars for the rest of their lives. We must act now.

Over 400,000 children in Gaza now require immediate psycho-social counseling. This support is critical to help these children heal from the repeated trauma they’ve faced. Without it, many will fall into greater despair, with little hope for the future.

UNRWA is committed to providing support to these children, but we must have the funds to do so. That’s why we’re asking you to join us for our Gaza 5K walk/runs in San Francisco and Los Angeles/Orange County in October! As you may know, we are returning to San Francisco for the second year in a row, but this will be our first-ever event in southern California.

All funds raised from these walk/runs will support UNRWA’s Community Mental Health Program to provide children with critical psycho-social support. The sooner you register and start fundraising, the sooner we can provide these services:

These events are a meaningful way for the California community to get active to help the children of Gaza. We encourage you to create your own team and start your own fundraising page to empower your network of friends and family to support your efforts!

Already registered? Please forward this email on to your network. Can’t make it? Please spread the word or donate what you can. The children of Gaza have never needed our help more, so we hope to see you, your friends, and your family there!

In solidarity,
Team UNRWA USA
