Rise Up for Refugees
December 7, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$25 – $50
A benefit for United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees.
Palestine Refugees Need Your Help! The lives, rights, dignity, and future of over 5 million children, women, and men are at risk after the abrupt withdrawal of US funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). Since 1950, UNRWA has provided this vulnerable community with quality education, healthcare, protection, employment, and essential services, pending a just and lasting solution for their plight. Now, this vital relief and development agency faces the greatest challenge in its proud history.
Benefit Dinner. Attend an educational benefit dinner to raise awareness and support for UNRWA and the refugees it serves. An UNRWA USA representative will give an update on this humanitarian crisis and Palestinians who have received UNRWA support will share their stories.
6 pm: Networking and Resource Tabling
6:30 pm: Buffet Dinner: Hoda’s Middle-Eastern Cuisine
