NY- Together for Palestine and Yemen ft. The Archbishop of Palestine
Islamic Relief USA presents Together For Palestine and Yemen featuring the honorable Archbishop of Palestine Atalla Hanna with keynote speakers Dr. Mohamed Moussa and Imam Mohamed Almasmari and special host Dr. Debbie Almontaser.
A resurgence of violence in Gaza has left dozens dead and thousands injured. IRUSA is working quickly to send food aid to those in need. As of 2018 over 90% of drinking water has been contaminated due to lack of proper filtration systems. Currently youth unemployment ranks in the highest in the world at 58% putting many at risk of never achieving self-sustainability. Recent violence has claimed the lives of over 60 Palestinians.
Islamic Relief has been providing humanitarian relief in Palestine since 1994, and Islamic Relief Palestine opened its office there in 1998 so that long-term development projects could be implemented and overseen by people in the field.
As of right now, more than 22 million Yemenis are trapped in what’s being called the world’s “worst humanitarian crisis.”
The current conflict, fighting, and constantly changing front lines have displaced tens of thousands of people who are, by no fault of their own, seeking shelter in spontaneous public buildings and shelters.
Food aid and access to clean water is a major concern—17.8 million are food insecure and 8.4 million don’t know where to get their next meal from.
Will you invest in the people of Palestine and Yemen? Join us as we come together to answer the call of those in need.
