Dear friends, supporters, and advocates for justice,
In the face of the humanitarian crisis in Gaza Strip and the Occupied Palestinian Territories, we are reaching out to you with a heartfelt plea to support Palestinian students who are studying in the United States.
The ongoing siege and harsh realities of war have left many Palestinian families in crisis, with homes destroyed, lives upended, and the constant threat of violence looming. Families in Gaza Strip and the West Bank are experiencing ethnic cleansing and genocide, which inevitably shifts their energy and use of resources towards survival. As a result, Palestinian students currently studying in the US are left without the financial resources to remain enrolled in school and meet their basic needs. The harsh reality is that if students pause their academic pursuit to support their families, grieve, and deal with this ongoing crisis, then their educational visas may be challenged.
This GoFundMe campaign aims to provide direct and immediate assistance to Palestinian students studying in the US.
- We pledge to engage with reputable educational, social, and non-governmental organizations and communities to identify Palestinian students studying in the US.
- We pledge to personally oversee that every dollar raised goes directly to Palestinian students in need.
- We pledge to meticulously oversee every aspect of this campaign to ensure transparency and accountability, while maintaining confidentiality of student recipients.
- We pledge to distribute funds based on need, prioritizing students with families in the Gaza Strip and Occupied Palestinian Territories who lack the resources to support their education.
- We pledge to provide updates on the students who directly benefit from your contributions, showcasing the tangible impact of your support.
