The Middle East Children’s Alliance is a nonprofit organization working for the rights and the well-being of children in the Middle East. MECA supports dozens of community projects for Palestinian children and refugees from Syria. Since 1988 we have delivered $27 million in food and medical aid to Palestine, Iraq, and Lebanon. MECA welcomes the support of all people who care about children and their future.

We create educational and cultural programs in the US and internationally to increase understanding of the lives of children in the Middle East. We collect funds so that we can provide:

  • Direct Aid: Providing food, medicine, medical supplies, clothes, books, toys and school supplies to children
  • Clean, Safe Water: Building and installing water purification units in schools and preschools throughout Gaza
  • Financial Support for Community Projects: Partnering with clinics, kindergartens, counseling centers, libraries, accessible parks and playgrounds, sports teams, arts and media programs.
  • University Scholarships: Awarding scholarships to talented and ambitious high school graduates in the West Bank and Gaza to obtain degrees and the skills to make important contributions to their communities and their country.
