Palestinian students are struggling
The Palestinian economy is under siege and Gaza has faced a worsening humanitarian crisis over the past 13 years since the illegal blockade began. COVID-19 has deepened the crisis – unemployment in Gaza has now grown to 49%. Growing poverty makes it harder for students to pay tuition fees and cuts funding for universities.
Fobzu makes a difference
The number of COVID-19 cases is still rising in the West Bank and Gaza. Fobzu has responded by working with UNRWA to provide laptops, tablets and internet to joint Fobzu-UNRWA students at Birzeit University and in Gaza. We are also continuing to provide much needed scholarships to students in financial need and working to raise awareness about their plight.
With your help we can do more. Please make a donation today.
A gift from you today means we can keep up this vital work and support more Palestinian students and academics at this critical time.
