The Group's Purpose

This year, we're trying REALLY HARD to raise $30,000 for Islamic Relief's 'Recovering Well Being of Gaza's Children' initiative.

Islamic Relief started this project in 2014, following Israel's attack on Gaza. It is a 10 year initiative that aims to provide mental health support to Gazan children traumatized by the attacks.

Not all wounds are visible. Mental Health Matters.

50% of children living in Gaza express no will to live and their mental health is in crisis, regardless of your political belief's the idea that children are innocent parities in conflict should not be controversial and their suffering should not go un-noticed or un-aided. Join me in showing the children of Palestine that we have NOT forgotten them, and that we will do whatever we can to make sure they get the help they need.

From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.

How to Help

I am asking friends, comrades, and colleagues to support our fundraising efforts by donating to the cause through this page. No amount is too small to make a difference, The Canadian dollar goes a long way oversea's and the more people pledge the harder it will be for the powers that be to ignore the obvious. Canadian's don't want our foreign aid to be invested into military industrial complexes and endless war. We want medical services, mental health initiatives, and economic empowerment. We want children who see a future that they want to be a part of. We want justice.
