Gaza Emergency Appeal

Ahmad is from Khuza'a, a small farming town in Gaza. During Israel’s last offensive, his home was under siege for 22 hours. Ahmad’s house was destroyed and his family was forced to take refuge in a UN school in Khan Younis. They were lucky to make it out alive. After the ceasefire, Ahmad wanted to enrol at university to study nursing, but his father said, “No house, no education.” His family need to direct their priorities to other things, like food.
Ahmad is just one of many students in Gaza who have lost their homes or family members who would have supported them through university.

It is vital young people who have experienced such terrible loss aren’t also deprived of their right to an education. Fobzu has already committed £50,000 to providing emergency funds to cover the tuition fees of students like Ahmad in Gaza. But many more need our support.

Education is a lifeline for young Palestinians. Please help them build themselves a future by donating today.

Every donation, large or small, makes a real difference.

Even while the medical crisis in Gaza remains, and Israel obstructs the best efforts of those who try to alleviate it, education is a precious resource; we need to preserve the future as well as the present
