Weʼre raising £2,000 to help Palestinian refugees in need.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Hi, my brother and I are looking to volunteer in Palestine around August time to help refugees in need. There are over 1.4 million refugees in Palestine who are extremely vulnerable due to unemployment, poverty and food insecurity. The state of their current country is due to Israelis occupation of the Palestinian land. This land they're fighting over, belonged to Palestinian people way before the Israelis seek to claim ownership. Now the Palestinian people are prisoners in their own home. In process of this war it has resulted in the loss 4 million acres of land, 400 Palestinian cities and over 3000 Palestinians have died since 2014. This is why we would like your help to try better the lives of these people have lost so much.
We have always been passionate about volunteering, however recently we became increasingly interested in helping those in refugee sites and desolate situations. In addition, after recent circumstances we experienced what it is like to not have a permanent home, therefore we are able to relate to this situation and help others in any shape or form.
Our aim is to travel to Palestine and work in collaboration with Love Volunteers to improve the lives of those have lost so much. We will assist the volunteering team by creating fun, educational activities, designing games for youths to take part in and supporting existing community development projects.
We have chosen this organisation as their main aim is to improve the future prospects of some of Palestine’s most impoverished people. The organisation is very well-structured providing accommodation and a 24/7 local support network to ensure the process goes smoothly for all of its volunteers. In addition, the organisation offers a number of flexible packages that allow it’s volunteers to choose how long they would like to volunteer for at a minimum of two weeks. With a great interest in media and film, I realised how little coverage there is online about the awful condition’s refugees endure on a day to day basis. If you donate towards this cause, we will make sure to document our journey to showcase the positive effects that your contributions can have on those in need.
