BENEFITING: PALESTINE CHILDRENS RELIEF FUND
EVENT DATE: Feb 18, 2011
Thank you so much for visiting our fund raising page! We are delighted that you have come to donate and support this worthy cause that is dear to all our hearts!
OUR MISSION: to climb to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in February 2010.
OUR AIM: to raise $150,000 for PCRF
WHO? A bunch of unfit yet fearless souls from the Middle East, the UK and the US who want to make a difference, however small :)
We are raising money for an organisation that:
1/ regularly sends injured and sick Arab children to North America, the Middle East and Europe for free care that is not available to them at home
2/ identifies and treats any child in the Middle East in need of specialized surgery not available to them locally.
3/ sends much needed medical equipment and supplies to the West Bank and Gaza Strip
4/ trains Palestinian surgeons so they can treat patients at home
For more information about the PCRF, here's a little brief:
The PCRF was established in 1991 in the US in order to address the humanitarian crisis facing Palestinian kids in the Middle East. It has since expanded to helping children of other nationalities in the region based on the most pressing needs of the time.
