The Israeli occupation of Gaza, including the ongoing blockade, repeated aerial bombardment, and massacre of non-violent protestors, has lead to a mental health crisis for Palestinian children in Gaza.

Donating and fundraising is the least we can do. Israeli violations have only been possible due to decades of US support, including $3.8b annually in US military aid to Israel. Recent US defunding of UNRWA, the main relief agency in Gaza, has worsened the crisis. 

Please consider donating to or joining our NYC Gaza 5K team, and supporting mental health programming for children Gaza.
