Al-Khair Foundation is proud to support the psychological and social wellbeing of 4,000 Palestinian refugee students and aid workers in Gaza.
Our commitment to supporting the most vulnerable Palestinian students, was recently praised by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNWRA).
“Al-Khair Foundation continues to contribute to the well-being of Palestine refugees in Gaza impacted by recurrent hostilities and the blockade. This new contribution ensures that children have access to much-needed psychosocial support,” commented UNRWA’s Chief of Partnerships, Misbah Sheikh.
The press release affirmed how AKF’s support for Palestinian students extends “Across all 267 UNRWA schools in Gaza” – with the new round of funding providing social and mental health support to 4,000 students in Gaza’s Daraj neighbourhood, as well as over 3,700 students over the past year:
“[AKF has helped in] ensuring quality education, all operating costs, learning materials, as well as the safety and enhancement of our Daraj Elementary Schools. The project warranted quality education for over 3,700 students and the funding of 100 teachers’ salaries, during the scholastic year 2015/16.”
