WHY WE RUN
Proceeds from the Gaza 5K walk/run benefit UNRWA’s Community Mental Health Programme, which provides psychosocial support to Palestine refugee children in Gaza suffering from trauma due to repeated Israeli military assaults and the continued blockade. The situation is dire – 51% of children in Gaza suffer from PTSD as a result of the 2014 Israeli assault.
When you join the Gaza 5K movement, you are helping provide these children with critically needed counseling services, offering them a safe space to express their emotions and fears, and the opportunity to work with trained counselors to learn valuable coping skills.
