Raised by 47 people in 28 days
Majd Burnat is a 20 year old Palestinian student who is starting his civil engineering education at Iden University in Istanbul, Turkey.

Majd was born and raised in Bilin, a farming village that has been isolated from it’s agricultural lands by the illegal apartheid wall in occupied Palestine. Residents of Bilin and activists who visit from around the world gather in a non-violent protest at the apartheid wall every Friday. 

At at the age of 15, Majd joined the weekly demonstration and was met with both tear gas canisters and live bullets intentionally aimed at the crowd by Israeli soldiers. While attempting to flee, he fell victim to live bullets with a shots fired multiple times into his leg.

As a result of this injury, Majd has undergone countless surgeries and still suffers severe pain and limited use of his leg. Despite hardship from a young age, he continues to dream of a better life. He hopes to use his education to better the life of fellow Palestinians by improving the infrastructure of a land demolished by years of unlawful occupation. 

We aim to help him raise 6000 dollars to cover his tuition for this year and 6000 dollars for living expenses.
