Honour Suha's Legacy - Scholarship Fund

Hello friends,

With the sudden death of Suha on Sunday, July 11th, we have lost a beautiful human being, a compassionate friend, and a fearless advocate for freedom, justice, and equality. We are all feeling this deeply painful loss and looking for ways to honour Suha's remarkable legacy in her pursuit of human rights and justice in Palestine.

This fundraiser was originally created to help cover the expenses (including flights, time off work and accommodations) of Yafa and her partner, James, so that they can grieve and find some solace with family in Palestine in the coming months.

Now all additional funds will go towards creating a scholarship in Suha's name. Details of the scholarship are still being worked out with Suha's family, but it will be established to ensure a conduit for future generations of Palestinian youth to carry forward her steadfastness and dedication.

While the world will forever miss Suha's vibrant energy and passion, her spirit lives on in all those who resist injustice and stand up for liberation and dignity.

"Your absence is searingly painful, excruciatingly painful. But I remain steadfast and strong, like the mountains of beloved Palestine." - Khalida Jarrar, Yafa and Suha's mother
