You still have time to make a final 2019 gift to the Middle East Children’s Alliance before midnight. Your generosity helps children survive every day. And a generous matching gift of $100,000 makes your support go twice as far. Please give now!
With your help, in 2020 MECA will provide:
Life-saving medical aid to Gaza and Syrian Refugees
Despite multiple obstacles, MECA will continue to respond to emergencies and shortages by sending medicine and medical supplies to hospitals and clinics in Gaza and for Syrian refugees in Lebanon.
Trauma Intervention and Psychological Support
Social workers, psychologists, teachers, and specially trained volunteers in Palestine will continue to work with children who suffer ongoing distress due to multiple military attacks, imprisonment, home demolitions and other traumatic experiences.
Chances to Experience a “Taste of Childhood”
MECA’s partners in Palestine and Lebanon give opportunities to Palestinian and Syrian children to connect with their culture and express themselves through art, dance, writing, media, music, and sports.
Plus clean water, warm clothes and shoes, weather protection and electricity for homes, health education, academic support, libraries, computer centers, playgrounds, and other things every child deserves.
We can only do this work with your support. Please give before midnight to DOUBLE the impact of your tax-deductible gift to MECA.
With best wishes for a Happy New Year
from MECA Staff and Partners in Berkeley, Palestine, and Lebanon
