I’m gonna be running in the #Gaza5K again this year to raise money for mental health services to children in Gaza. Please donate and share if you can: https://getinvolved.unrwausa.org/fundraiser/1259802 

Why I am fundraising:

  • Every child in Gaza over the age of 10 has experienced three or more conflicts in their lifetime, and nearly 100% of children in Gaza require some form of counseling.
  • CMHP has achieved tangible results, despite adverse circumstances. Since CMHP’s establishment, UNRWA has seen greater academic focus and confidence in the children who have received support.
  • Basic psychosocial and mental health care is not only critical in supporting the most vulnerable children and adults, but remains essential in developing and implementing community-based interventions that can strengthen families. With the Gaza 5K funds, we aim to strengthen UNRWA’s services to both children and adults and ensure everyone has access to a counselor or some form of psychosocial support.
  • By supporting CMHP through the Gaza 5K, you are providing counselors instrumental in mitigating some of the traumatic effects of trauma children and families in the Gaza Strip are facing.
