Palestine refugees need your help! Join us for a benefit for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA)

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.
