Palestinians Need Our Support & Solidarity!
Dear Friend of The Jerusalem Fund,
As Palestinians continue to be attacked on many fronts, including the recent US decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, it is incumbent upon us all to intensify our efforts to strengthen Palestinian solidarity and steadfastness.
A Palestinian heritage center in the Old City of Jerusalem, a computer lab for the youth of Deir El-Balah in Gaza, a new educational facility for special needs children in Al-Khader village near Bethlehem, a classroom for Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, and a greenhouse in Um Al-Khair near Hebron to prevent illegal Israeli settlers from confiscating more land — these are just a few of the projects that our Humanitarian Link program has been able to sponsor.
We couldn’t have done it without you.
Dozens of community development and humanitarian project initiatives for Palestinians have been funded this year because of your generous donations and support. As we mark the 40th anniversary of The Jerusalem Fund, we are more grateful than ever for building a community of supporters that is committed to the well-being of Palestinians around the world.
However, until Palestinians are able to stand on their own, we must continue to work hard to assist them. Today, we humbly ask that you help us do more so that we can sponsor more of these humanitarian projects.
In addition to providing humanitarian relief and community development to the people of Palestine, we kindly ask that you help us continue to develop our efforts in the US as well.
Our Palestine Center, located in Washington, DC, hosts academics, activists, and other experts to speak about the many issues and current events affecting Palestinians. Your assistance to this program helps expose the grim realities that Palestinians face, whether under threat of home demolition in Susiya and Khan Al-Ahmar, or under attack on American college campuses — the Palestine Center is on the forefront of spreading awareness.
We also call on you to aid Palestinians in the fight against diabetes, which has a huge impact on their ability to stand strong. Our Palestine Diabetes Institute (PDI) recently opened its third West Bank clinic in Hebron, and your support will allow the PDI to treat more patients while also creating jobs. Let us keep up the momentum.
Please consider an end-of-year gift of any amount that you can afford. All donations to The Jerusalem Fund are fully tax-deductible to the extent of the law and will go towards the program that you designate. Whether you choose to support our humanitarian, educational, or cultural programs, your contributions will surely benefit Palestinians in their struggle.
We thank you for letting them know that they are not alone, and we wish you all the best during the holidays and in the new year.
With sincere gratitude,
|Subhi D. Ali, MD||Eid B. Mustafa, MD|
